December 26, 2012 by  

The 7th annual Bid for Hope dinner, which is a major fundraising event for Arundel House of Hope, will take place at La Fontaine Bleue on February 10 from 2:00 pm – 6:00 pm. Tickets went on sale in early December and are $40 each or $350 for a table of 10. Sponsorships are available for $100 – $5,000.

Arundel House of Hope provides services and programs to help the homeless throughout Ann Arundel County The organization provides such services as a winter relief emergency shelter, a resource and day center, a medical clinic, Safe Haven programs, and runs Patriot House for homeless veterans. It is a very worthwhile cause that helps to give people hope through helping to give them develop skills to allow them to have a better life.

Bid for Hope will feature a three-course dinner, a silent auction, a live auction, and musical entertainment. Items up for bidding will include gift baskets, homemade crafts, tickets to sporting events, and gift cards. It should be a fun evening and the fact it is for a worthwhile cause will increase that fun.

Local Glen Burnie businesses will most likely be donating items to be auctioned off. They can help increase that donation by working with local printing companies and ordering flyer printing services. They can then mail out the flyer to their customers and business peers letting them know about the event, and recipients might want to donate their own gifts or attend the event themselves.
