University of Denver- POSTPONED
Spring is a Time for HOPE Brunch
Due to the coronavirus restrictions on size of gatherings, and the closing of the University of Denver, it is impossible for the Center for Health and Hope to host the April 25 annual “Spring is a Time for HOPE” Brunch.
Like everyone else, we are in a state of readjusting our scheduling and planning. Currently, we plan to reschedule the Brunch in combination with our annual breakfast held in October, 2020. We would award the 2020 Shero of the Year award to Dr. Marjorie Bayes at that time! The date and place of that event is yet to be scheduled.
The purpose of the “Spring is a Time for HOPE” brunch has always been to “Help Orphans by Providing Essentials.” This year we had already agreed to help 361 AIDS orphans in Kenya at $200 each for a total of $72,200. The brunch usually raises about $25,000 of that total, so cancelling has consequences.
Fortunately, the donors who always pay for the foods have designated their $5,000 be used instead for the children. They have suggested we rename our spring efforts: “Quarantined for HOPE” and allow people to continue to support the 361 AIDS orphans in Kenya who continue to struggle at this time. You can visit our DONATE page to donate to this cause.
At the Center for Health and Hope, we are improvising to meet the changing conditions thrust upon us by the coronavirus pandemic. Thank you for your understanding and support as we seek to be faithful to those most marginalized during this uncertain time.
If you have suggestions or concerns, never hesitate to contact me. Don Messer
