Photos from the 14th Annual Hope Awards Dinner

Thank you to everyone who supported Calvary Women’s Services through the Hope Awards Dinner on May 14! More than 300 guests gathered at the Ronald Reagan Building & International Trade Center to celebrate the inspiring achievements of women at Calvary. The event was a great success where we raised more than $300,000 that will go toward Calvary’s housing, health, education and employment programs. Enjoy some photos from the event below! More photos are posted on Calvary’s flickr page.

If you haven’t seen it already, please watch our new video, “Where Hope Meets Impact,” which premiered at the Hope Awards Dinner. The video was produced by SevenTwenty Strategies.
