Hearts for Hope Success

View 2010 Hearts for Hope Photo Gallery. It is hard to believe that this has only been the third annual Hearts for Hope fundraiser, as it has so quickly become the “go-to” event of the year!
With the over the top creativity of Vivia Costalas and the amazing generosity of Preston Bailey, Olivier Cheng, Litsa Costalas and our friends at TD Bank, co-chairs Samantha Rudin and Angela Schonberg went above and beyond in creating a fabulous event. From top-of-the-line silent auction items to an elite guest list, the event more than doubled our proceeds from last year. Hearts of Hope’s success was due in large measure to our esteemed friend, donor and supporter, Rajesh Alva, who was presented with the “Heart of Incarnation” award for his unending support of ICC over the last 15 years and counting.
Over 300 guests were in attendance for the evening and enjoyed the silent auction, raffle and art gallery featuring words and images by the ICC residents. In fact, featured auction items included artwork and jewelry made and donated by the children themselves.
We are forever grateful to the friends and colleagues of our wonderful co-chairs, honoree, and donors who made this event a success beyond our expectations. As we start planning even now for Hearts for Hope 2012, we realize that this year will be hard to beat!
