HOPE for the Holidays


Join Us for Our Annual HOPE for the Holidays

Please join us for our 2nd Annual HOPE for the Holidays event, hosted in partnership with AR Homes® Monterey Bay Construction Charlotte. This wonderful evening of hors d’oeuvres, drinks, live music, and raffle will take place on December 6th from 6PM to 9PM at our spectacular new Valand model in North Ridge, and will benefit the many North Carolina children, and their foster families, served by the Children’s Hope Alliance. Last year, thanks to the generosity of our friends, clients, neighbors, and business partners, we were able to completely fulfill wish lists for dozens of children.

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 8801 Westgate Park Drive, Suite 10610, Raleigh, NC, Monday through Friday, from 10AM to 5PM, until December 1st, 2023. For questions or to RSVP to the event, please contact Brian Strombotne at BStrombotne@ARHomes.com or 919-219-5372.
