Hope Awards Dinner to Raise Funds for Programs that Support Homeless Women

Calvary Women’s Services will host the 14th Annual Hope Awards Dinner on May 14, 2015 to honor local leaders and celebrate the accomplishments of women who are overcoming homelessness. All proceeds from the event will support Calvary’s housing, health, education and employment programs for homeless women in Washington. The Hope Awards Dinner is Calvary’s largest fundraising event of the year, and more than 300 guests are anticipated to be in attendance.

Rosie Allen-Herring, president and chief executive officer of United Way of the National Capital Area (United Way NCA), will be presented with the Hope Award. Mrs. Allen-Herring has more than 20 years of experience in strategic leadership, public and private partnership development, corporate philanthropy and community investment. She oversees United Way NCA’s efforts to help all individuals lead better lives through initiatives that support quality education, financial stability and good health.

Mrs. Allen-Herring will join a distinguished list of past honorees who have received the Hope Award, including Katie Couric, Sheila Johnson, Diane Rehm and Judy Smith.

The Hope Awards Dinner will be held in the Atrium Ballroom of the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center. The event begins at 6 p.m. with a cocktail reception and silent auction, followed by dinner, live auction and award presentation.
