Chicken & Waffles for HOPE Recap

On July 14th we had our first Raleigh, NC event! Chicken & Waffles for HOPE was exactly what it sounds like: a Chicken & Waffles dinner with a Silent Auction and live music. And it was a blast!

We met so many new folks and were able to share our story with them. Our fundraising goal was $1,000 for this first-time event, and we made over $3,600!! Such an encouraging turn-out as people are joining our CiH family to give HOPE to women in Zambia. Our fabulous Raleigh Summer Interns put this event together in just over one month- aren't they incredible?!

Enjoy some photos from this fun-filled evening! But first, a huge thanks to the following sponsors for Chicken & Waffles for HOPE:
