1401 Ballentine Boulevard, Norfolk
7PM – 9PM

The Hope Gala is an opportunity for The Salvation Army to thank and recognize loyal donors, volunteers, corporations and foundations for their support of the past year.

This black tie dinner features keynote speaker Emmitt Smith and awards presentation to key community partners and individuals, noting the importance of community philanthropy and the difference one’s generosity makes when giving to The Salvation Army in any form. Attendance at the dinner is an opportunity to learn of The Salvation Army’s programs and services and how much your support is appreciated. This year’s Hope Gala will also include a sneak peek of the Kroc Center before the grand opening weekend. Be one of the first to see this one-of-a-kind 92,000 square foot facility and how it will become the heart of the community.

Additionally, proceeds from this year’s event will go toward scholarships for Kroc Center memberships for those in the community unable to make the usual membership fees.

Ticket price: $175/person. For ticket information, please contact: Nicole Pellegrino at 757.965.9007 or nicole_pellegrino@uss.salvationarmy.org.
