Sparkle of Hope Gala

We have made the decision to not hold an in-person or virtual event this year.  It was a difficult decision, but it is the responsible one.  Because the highlight of Sparkle is to bring so many people together physically, we believe that a virtual event would not be sufficient.

Your support is still needed to ensure our continued success and to fill the gap left by the changes to our signature fundraising event!  Please consider becoming a sponsor of the Sparkle of Hope 2020.

No donation is too small and all donations will go to support the Community Hope Programs in support of homeless veterans and adults with mental illness.

The Sparkle of Hope Gala was founded in 1997 by pharmaceutical icon Fred Hassan and has raised over $16 million in support of Community Hope.  Now in its 24th year, this signature event brings together the pharmaceutical industry, its leaders and business partners to ensure our nonprofit’s vital support services that complement pharmaceutical advancements in mental health treatment.  In 2017, Founding Chair, Fred Hassan turned over leadership of the event to Brent Saunders, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Allergan plc.  Under Brent Saunders’ leadership, the gala has raised over $1.4 million with 899 attendees at the 2019 event.

 

A Special Thank You to our Sponsors!
