Benefit Party For Matthew’s Hope Brought Needed Donations

It was an evening of community, compassion and fun.

A Benefit Party for Matthew’s Hope

Photos and stories from people who have gone through, or are going through, the Matthew’s Hope program were placed in different areas of the Beer & Wine event that took place on Saturday night at the home of Dave and Amy Vanz in Windermere, FL.  As guests came in and mingled around they took time to read each of the stories around the home learning more about the non-profit that is helping people get back on their feet after finding themselves homeless and without jobs.  Each of the guests who came to the event brought a donation that was listed on the invite.  From toiletries to dishes to socks and under garments, people kicked off the week of Thanksgiving with the giving of their hearts.
