2019 Endowment Event


Annual Endowment Fund Event raises over $295,000!

The Hope House Ministries Endowment Committee hosted its 17th Annual Endowment Fund Event on Thursday, March 14th, at the beautiful Villa Lombardi’s in Holbrook, New York. This year’s gala was successful in raising a prodigious $295,000, bringing the seventeen year event total close to $4 1/2 million! The Committee welcomed over 200 guests who joined together in celebrating Hope House Ministries’ 39th year of service to the community.

At this year’s dinner, Hope House was very proud to honor Raymond J. Suris, Esq., founder of Suris & Associates, P.C., and Sean Chamberlain, Co-President of Dynamic Sports Management. These gentlemen garnered great support as well respected and beloved members of the Long Island community.

At the close of the evening, Fr. Francis Pizzarelli gratefully acknowledged Ray and Sean and all who were instrumental over the past thirty-nine years in helping thousands in crisis journey from despair to finding hope, joy and success.
