2017 Book of Hope Sponsors

In lieu of a Gala Journal, we are offering an opportunity
to participate in something new and innovative this year!

What’s New? The Sisters have created a book entitled Stories of Hope:

  • The front and back cover and first three pages of this book will be dedicated to all of you who generously make this publication possible as a Platinum, Gold, Silver, Bronze or White Sponsor. (Each sponsor’s name, business or someone honored or memorialized will be formally listed on one of these dedication pages.)
  • Every guest will receive the book Stories of Hope. In addition it will be distributed through the Sisters’ mission of Evangelization, sharing stories of God’s love and mercy. In this way, your gift will be shared and multiplied across the country!
