Dinner + Silent Auction

Hope For Life’s Third Annual Dinner and Silent Auction is coming up, so save the date for Friday, October 16th. If you’re in the Fresno/Clovis area (or want to take a road trip), we would absolutely love to have you.

The Dinner + Auction is a no-charge event where we get to share a delicious meal, do some shopping for a good cause, and enjoy hearing about how God is working in and through the ministry of Hope For Life.

If you’re not already on our email list, you can sign up here – and you’ll get an invite with all the details.

Looking forward to seeing you soon!

Auction Items + Volunteers

If you have an item that you’d like to donate to this year’s auction, you can get in touch with Emily – and we’ll make sure it’s included!

And if you’d like to help with the Dinner + Auction – before, during, or after – we would absolutely love to have you join our team of amazing volunteers. Just give us a call or send us a message.
