Champion of Hope

March 2nd, 2016

On February 26th, 2016 Durham Architects, Interior Designers, and Planners with MHAworks hosted the Champion of Hope Evening Affair to benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society . Sixteen candidates in North Carolina were handpicked based on their community involvement and individual passions with the hope of funding research for blood related cancers. MHAworks Business Director George Hining was selected to compete for the title of Champion of Hope with his personally set goal of $50,000.


The event was a tremendous success!  Patrons enjoyed live entertainment by jazz sensation Jo Gore, superb linens donated by Party Tables, stunning floral arrangements by Tre Bella Florist, Glassware and other party necessities donated by American Party Rentals, all arranged under the event coordination of Lora Brooker at Soigne Events. One Hope Wine  donated a variety of exquisite wines and beer donations by Full Steam Brewery and Bull City Burger and Brewery 


The event was at the Rickhouse in Durham and photography provided by Keith Issacs. You can check out images of the party here


Because of generous donations from our guests and vendors, we were able to raise $15,000, so we’ve got a ways to go before George reaches his final goal. If you are willing and able to help please do so by making a donation
