Event Description

December 28th, 2013


Dear Widow’s Hope Foundation and Benefactor,


After reviewing from multiple sources the weather forecast for New Year’s Eve, and the reports of possible -10 degree weather with -40 degree wind chill factor, and a 46% chance of snow flurries, the event organizers for this event, on advice with external risk management experts, have decided that it’s in the best interest of all that we postpone our HOPE14 New Year Benefit Gala, which was to be held at Spasso Restaurant in Minnetonka.


We are postponing HOPE14 with a heavy heart since it was shaping up to be another fun, energetic, and probably sold-out event, with incredible music, great dancing, a rich flowing chocolate fountain, colorful balloon drop, champagne toast, Rolling Raffles, and Exotic Live Auction.


Regardless, in Widow’s Hope Foundation, the safety of our benefactors and volunteers always comes first, so this is a decision we felt we needed to take for your well-being.  Arrangements have been made to immediately refund the tickets already purchased.


But “postponed” means “postponed”; not cancelled.  We still have the enthusiasm, the balloons, the champagne, the decorations and the joy.  Our dance clothes are pressed and ready to hit the dance floor with you; we’ll be in touch just as soon as we have a new date.


Have a safe and wonderful New Year!
