Voices for Hope is H.O.P.E.’s largest annual event which includes an evening of celebration, fine dining, a guest speaker, silent auction, and door prizes.
The evening celebrates the organization and its supporters while paying tribute to Scott Brown by presenting The Scott Brown Memorial Seeds of Hope Award. Each year, H.O.P.E. recognizes an individual, business, or organization that has emerged as a devoted, compassionate supporter of cancer patients and their families.
Join H.O.P.E. on Thursday, May 4, as it celebrates its 12th annual Voices for Hope event. Headlining the event will be local cancer survivor and author Keith Humphries, who is successfully battling stage IV lung cancer. Recipient of this year’s Seeds of Hope Award will be Ravens Nest 7.
Scott Brown, who was Vice President and Manager of Fruit and Vegetable Operations at Brown’s Orchards and Farm Market, lost his battle with cancer in 2005. Scott not only planted seeds for a living, he planted seeds of hope for the future. This is symbolized in the award which is crafted in crystal featuring a dove in flight, and includes a core of applewood taken from Brown’s Orchards. The dove is the symbol of H.O.P.E., its outstretched wings reminding us of John Gillespie Magee’s “High Flight.”
“Oh, I have slipped the surly bonds of earth…
and danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings…
put out my hand and touched the face of God.”
