Party Reflections........

It was a lovely evening and especially nice to hear the young men
speak. Our hearts go out to them and it makes us all feel good about
how Dollars for Scholars has made a difference in their lives
.... Ellie Thompson




Made new friends. Learned more about HHDfS. 
Wonderful evening......Don Lopes & Lisa Beade





It was just another social event until the kids spoke.  That changed
everything and made the night memorable.  Their stories of where they
came from, their struggles, the people who helped them overcome their
hardships, and their consequent successes are testimony that it does
take a village..........Ralph Fortune





An unexpected party surprise - childhood friends reunited!
....Jane Rosenbloom Bermont & Sara Linder Sheiber







The August Soiree was wonderful!  As an HHDfS newcomer, I was
embraced by warm and welcoming alumni. The newly restored Yacht Club
was a beautiful venue, the food and service were fabulous. The
highlight of the evening was listening to the Hope Scholars tell
their stories of success. It was particularly poignant to observe
that each Scholar had overcome significant life difficulties to
graduate from Hope High, excel in college and embark upon their adult
life journey. I am so happy to have had the opportunity to attend
this event.....Shirley Francis-Fraser

How nice to meet with eloquent Hope  High Scholars whose excellence
in college proves their merit keeping Hope and hope in sight for the
coming generation. ....Rick Nathan
