2020 Gala Online Event
August 27, 2020
You are invited
to the Bridge of Hope Gala
“In Your Neighborhood Edition”
Thursday, August 27, 2020
Log In at 11:30 am,
Program 12:00 – 1:00 pm
Online event featuring our speaker, Shannan Martin, sharing a message about Neighboring in the season of social distancing, and stories from Bridge of Hope.
This year – to keep us all safe – we will not hold the Gala as a large group, but encourage you to invite a small group of friends to gather together and join us from wherever you feel comfortable. It will be a different year but a fun way to connect in support of Bridge of Hope’s work of building community and connection for families facing homelessness. It will also be a great opportunity to share our mission with someone who is not yet familiar with Bridge of Hope!
Join us and hear stories of how YOU are impacting the lives of Bridge of Hope families both locally and nationally.
Our always popular silent auction will be held online! Items are now available to PREVIEW so visit our auction site to see many of the items and start your wish list! The auction will go LIVE for bidding on Sunday, August 23rd and will remain open through August 30th at midnight.
Tickets are free, but each participant must register to receive the link and instructions for the event. Please note that free attendees will not receive lunch.
All sponsors who would like to participate have the option to receive a delivered light lunch for 2-10 and one copy of Shannan Martin’s book The Ministry of Ordinary Places: Waking Up to God’s Goodness Around You (read more about Shannan at the bottom of this page.)

Bridge of Hope is neighboring to end family homelessness. Over 582 women, children and Neighboring Volunteers were involved in the program this past year. In Bridge of Hope, lives change, families are strengthened and hope begins. Our annual Gala Luncheon will be held online VIA ZOOM on Thursday, August 27th, 2020 from wherever you choose to participate. It will feature Shannan Martin, best-selling author of The Ministry of Ordinary Places: Waking Up to God’s Goodness Around You and Falling Free: Rescued from the Life I Always Wanted. Shannan is a speaker and writer who found her voice in the country and her story in the city. She lives with her jail-chaplain husband, Cory, and their kids as grateful neighbors in Goshen, Indiana. Shannan will inspire you to love your neighbor, right where God has placed you, and will be sharing her message about Neighboring in the season of social distancing.
Thanks to our 2020 Gala Luncheon sponsors.
