Looking for a unique and enjoyable dining experience while helping those less fortunate within our community? Then “The Falling Leaves and Friendship” Dinner, a premier fundraising event for Hope House, is the place to be on Saturday October 24th from 5-7 PM. Hope House will also be honoring the Utica Police Department for their professionalism in protecting the citizens of the great City of Utica.
The dinner is being hosted by Sacred Heart-St. Mary Our Lady of Czestochowa Catholic Church, 201 Main St. New York Mills, who have a long history of volunteering and supporting Hope House. The dinner will feature an authentic Polish menu including popular favorites – pierogi, golabki, kielbasa and sauerkraut. Wine and non alcoholic beverages are included.
Tickets are $25 or 2/$45, and can be purchased at Hope House, 130 Eagle Street Utica or Sacred Heart-St Mary Our Lady of Czestochowa Parish Office, 201 Main St. New York Mills. For information call Hope House at 315.793.3723.
Established in 1990, Hope House serves close to 100,000 meals a year. The hungry and homeless have come to rely upon 2-3 daily meals at Hope House, having a safe haven from the streets and come to be with “Family”. It is the primary purpose of the Hope House to offer homeless or needy individuals a daytime opportunity for shelter, a hot nutritious meal and referral, if desired, to additional human services needed.
Hope House would not be able to function if it were not for the hundreds of local volunteers that make these services readily available. Today, there are over 150 volunteers per week from over 70 churches and community organizations who donate their time and talent to realizing the ultimate goal of Hope House.
However, with a community that is rapidly growing, Hope House has a goal to expand its facility to accommodate for the increasing Utica population and need. Your support of this event will help Hope house respond to the needs in our community and help those neighbors in need.
