Bread for the City’s Good Hope Gala

Our gala’s name pays homage to our Southeast Center’s roots on Good Hope Road, while reminding us of the reason we come together for this event–to provide hope for more than 34,000 people every year.

At our 2016 event, over 450 attendees helped us raise over ONE MILLION DOLLARS to support our poverty relief services in the District. It was a beautiful, exciting, and moving evening and we can’t wait to share the celebration with you! Will you join us in 2017?

                                         Tickets: $300 – on sale now!
