One week from today we’ll be heading down to the Hope Awards Dinner! Every year brings new surprises, guests, awesome auction items or vacations, stories and inspiration. As Calvary is entering our 12th Annual Hope Awards Dinner and our 30th year providing services for women who are homeless in DC, we have a lot to be thankful for – and a lot to celebrate! Take some time time to enjoy some of the great moments from last year’s dinner from our Flickr page, and get excited about attending an event that does good and feels great.
