Hi-Hope holding annual fundraiser

DULUTH — Dust off your tuxedo or evening gown and get ready to throw some dice because Hi-Hope Service Center is holding its annual fundraising gala tonight — the theme is “A Night in Las Vegas.”

This year, former Atlanta Falcons defensive end Chuck Smith is the honorary chairman for the event.

There will be live Las Vegas entertainment, raffle prizes, silent and live auctions which include items from Tara Fine Jewelry in Buford, heavy hors d’oeuvres, and a cash bar.

The money will benefit the nonprofit and its mission to “support adults with developmental disabilities by building and sustaining individual independence.”

The gala will be held at the 1818 Club located at 6500 Sugarloaf Parkway in Duluth.

“Elegantly chic attire” is requested for the event. For more information, visit www.hihopecenter.org.
