Dear Church Contacts,

 Thank you so much for all the support you and your church family have given to KentHOPE! We are so proud that in the 4 and 1/2 yrs since KentHOPE opened, we have transitioned 490 homeless women to housing and helped find employment for 215 women. But the cost of operating the day center and overnight shelter are $1000 each day they are open.

The 6th annual KentHOPE Fundraiser will be held at the Renton Pavilion on Saturday, Nov. 3rd, beginning at 5 pm. This year will be very special as we have added some festive activities: a dessert dash, fabulous auction items, local celebrity dance competition, and a delicious dinner.

We hope your church will be well-represented because our church partners are an important part of our ministry.  Although we greatly appreciate your donations all year, we especially need your support at the fundraiser. Please publicize the attached information the most effective way you can-feel free to copy for bulletin inserts and bulletin boards-and please advocate for KentHOPE by encouraging everyone to prayerfully consider attending.

 Registration is at www.kenthope.org.

Thanks so much for all you do, and please let me know if you have any questions.

 Pat Gray
