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.
Guests perused silent auction items and bid on their favorites.
