Special Events

  • Thanks to generous community support, The Salvation Army Hampton Roads Area Command is always available to serve those in need. The Army believes in treating each person who comes to us as an individual, not a statistic.

    Through generous support at Salvation Army special events, The Salvation Army Hampton Roads Area Command can continue to be a beacon of hope for our neighbors in need and live the promise of doing the most good.

    Evangeline Booth Award

    The Salvation Army Women’s Auxiliary of South Hampton Roads Evangeline Booth Award is given annually to women in the Hampton Roads community who embody and exemplify Ms. Booth’s motto, “There is no reward equal to that of doing the most good to the most people in the most need.”

    Through your support of the Evangeline Booth Award, you are providing valuable and much needed funding to the homeless women and children in Hampton Roads who benefit from The Salvation Army’s transitional housing program. This program gives women up to 24 months to save money, learn skills, gain confidence and achieve stability for their families.

    Kettle Krush 5k and One Mile Fun Run

    The Salvation Army Kettle Krush 5k and One Mile Fun Run will bring awareness to The Salvation Army’s spring and summer programming as well as spring and summer needs. Sure, it’s a different season than the Red Kettles are typically used but the reason is the same, to raise funds and awareness of The Salvation Army’s mission to provide human services. This event promises to be fun for all ages and athletic abilities and a great way to learn more about The Salvation Army in preparation for the 2014 opening of the Kroc Center.

    Turkey Shoot Golf Classic

    The Turkey Shoot Golf Classic benefiting The Salvation Army is a direct supporter of The Salvation Army’s Thanksgiving and year-round feeding programs.
