HOPE for the Holidays


Join Us for Our 6th Annual HOPE for the Holidays

Please join us for our 6th Annual HOPE for the Holidays event, hosted in partnership with AR Homes® Monterey Bay Raleigh. This wonderful evening of hors d’oeuvres, drinks, live music, and raffle will take place on December 6th from 6PM to 9PM at the spectacular new Valand model in Raleigh, and will benefit the many North Carolina children, and their foster families, served by the Children’s Hope Alliance. For the past 5 years, thanks to the generosity of our friends, clients, neighbors, and business partners, we have been able to completely fulfill wish lists for dozens of children, each holiday season, no matter the cost.

As the Children’s Hope Alliance is tasked with serving more children and foster families across North Carolina, in the face of rising costs and limited resources, we have set a goal to provide gifts to 50 children this year. Please join us in these inspired efforts by visiting the Wish List Registry linked below. Your purchased gifts can be sent directly to the Children’s Hope Alliance or shipped to your home address and hand-delivered to the event.

If you are unable to attend the event and prefer to receive your wish list items at home, gifts can be brought to our construction office at 18637 Northline Drive, Suite F, Cornelius, NC, Monday through Friday, from 10AM to 5PM, until December 1st, 2023. For questions or to RSVP to the event, please contact Dawn Wilkinson at DWilkinson@ARHomes.com or 704-960-0667.
