Ball Homes Night of Hope Surpasses Goal

hope center 300LEXINGTON, Ky. (10/30/13) – More than 825 people attended the Ball Homes Night of Hope Tuesday night at the Lexington Opera House, allowing the event to reach well over its $100,000 goal. These proceeds will go directly back to the Hope Center, a facility that helps to battle homelessness, addiction and mental illness.

Whereas, the exact number has not yet been calculated, the Hope Center's Development Manager Brooke Raby said they do know the exact amount reached over target. Former NBA player Chris Herren spoke at the event about his struggles with addiction, which Raby said made for a very moving experience.

“He was just phenomenal,” said Raby. “There wasn't really a dry eye in the house.”

The event also included music from the University of Kentucky Opera Theatre, and spotlights on some of the Hope Center's clients, including people in the recovery program, the veteran program, and in the shelter. Raby said all of these moving parts of the event made for a very meaningful night.

“It all comes together really beautifully thanks to people's generosity, their kindness, spirit, and willingness to help us with this and give,” said Raby. “There's just a million and a half small things that come together to make it a really special event.”
