Hope Blossoms 2017 - A Joyous Night!

May 11, 2017

On behalf of St. Ann's Board of Directors, staff and young families, we want to thank all those who joined us on May 3rd for Hope Blossoms 2017.

Hope Blossoms annual reception and awards ceremony honors those who have supported our mission to strengthen and care for families on their journey toward stability. The night is also an opportunity for members of the community to help raise funds essential to maintaining innovative services for young mothers and their children.

The night was full of exciting and memorable moments. Powerful stories were shared by our Master of Ceremonies, Michael Steele; a young St. Ann's mother, Brittany Booze; and The Mary McGrory Advocacy Award recipient, Cathy Lanier.

Hope Blossoms 2017 would not have been a success without the dedication of our sponsors, donors, staff and partners. We are especially grateful to Maria and Tom Roginski for their leadership and guidance as our Honorary Hosts and to our Hope Blossoms committee, thank you for your tireless work throughout many months of planning.

We would also like to congratulate our honorees for the evening Cathy Lanier, Tommy McFly, and Lattice Group, Inc. who have made enormous contributions to advancing the welfare of women, children and families in our community. Click here to read more about this year's honorees.
