• Hope For More Foundation Donates $50,000 to Embrace Families

    April 03, 2019

    April 1, 2019 (Maitland, FL)-- Hope for More Foundation recently raised $50,000 at their inaugural event, the Lexus of Orlando Anti-Gala presented by Kendrick Law Group benefitting Embrace Families. Today, the first day of National Child Abuse Prevention Month, Hope for More Foundation board members and volunteers presented Embrace Families with the proceeds from that event, which will help provide wrap-around services for Central Florida children who have faced abuse or neglect.



    “We were thrilled to roll out this event where the generous members of our central Florida community could show up, have a great time and raise money for such a worthwhile organization! Less money went into the dress code so more money could go to our beneficiary and it was a huge success!”- Sarah Geltz, Hope for More Board President


    “The ‘Anti-Gala’ hosted by Hope for More Foundation will have a very ‘pro-child’ result. Every dollar raised stays right here in Central Florida and directly benefits children in the foster care system.  We are profoundly grateful for their dedication to our community and, most especially, their heart for helping our kids.”- Glen Casel, Embrace Families President & CEO
