MEMPHIS, Tenn. — inferno, a full-service advertising, marketing, design and public relations firm, supported Hope House by attending the nonprofit’s annual fundraising event, the Hopes and Dreams Luncheon, on October 16. Several of inferno’s employees made individual contributions to Hope House and the agency matched these donations, bringing the total amount donated to more than $1,000. Hope House, located in Midtown Memphis, exists to improve the quality of life of HIV-impacted children and their families by addressing their educational, social, psychological and health needs.
“We’re proud to support Hope House as our nonprofit beneficiary for the second consecutive year,” said Dan O’Brien, Partner at inferno. “Throughout the year, we host several agency events that benefit Hope House. This luncheon was another way for us to support our 2013 nonprofit beneficiary and we are excited to help the nonprofit’s families during the upcoming holiday season.”
The luncheon, which is the nonprofit’s largest fundraiser of the year, began with an overview of the organization’s mission and followed with children from Hope House’s preschool program passing out candy and performing a small concert. Following, an HIV-positive mother took the stage and described how Hope House has assisted her family through daycare, Christmas gifts, financial training, career resources and personal care groups. After lunch, inferno employees made individual pledges to Hope House, which inferno matched.
Hope House opened in 1995 and is the only facility in the State of Tennessee designed to meet the unique needs of HIV-impacted children. It is accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). To learn more about Hope House, please visit www.hopehousememphis.org.
