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 26th 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, Executive Chairman of the Beauty health Company. Under Brent Saunders’ leadership, the gala has raised over $1.4 million with 899 attendees at the 2019 event. The Sparkle of Hope Gala has not held in person in 2020 and 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic; however, the Sparkle of Hope raised over $1.7 million in support of Community Hope in the past two years.
