Dear Friend of Honduras Agalta Valley Education (HAVE) Foundation:
After careful consideration, we have decided to postpone Honduras Hope 2020 -- which was scheduled for March 17 at the Atlanta City Hall Atrium -- until later this year. As you know, health concerns regarding COVID-19 continue to increase, so we felt it was prudent to take this action now. Nothing is more important than the health and well-being of our community.
Our plan is to hold the event later this fall when we can all celebrate and focus on the mission of HAVE – helping the people of the Agalta Valley improve their lives through education, one student at a time.
Here’s some good news: Thanks to the digital world in which we live, we won’t have to wait until our rescheduled date to raise money for the kids of Honduras. On March 17, we will kick-off our Honduras Hope Silent Auction online. Starting at 6 p.m. March 17, and running until Sunday, March 22 at 8 p.m., people will have the opportunity to bid on more than 20 amazing silent auction items, including a round at famed East Lake Golf Club, an Atlanta Braves VIP ticket package, an oceanfront Amelia Island penthouse condo and Chick-fil-A Kickoff game tickets.
Additionally, we will activate our FUND A TEACHER program online so people can donate to help cover salaries for English teachers in the schools. The ability to speak and comprehend English is a game-changer for the children. Thanks to everyone’s generosity at last year’s event, there are two permanent English teachers at the Hope Schools!
You can click here beginning at 6 p.m., March 17 to participate in the silent auction and FUND A TEACHER program. http://events.handbid.com/auctions/honduras-hope-2020
Finally, we want to thank our presenting sponsor, Delta Air Lines, and all of the companies and individuals who continue to support Honduras Hope. We greatly appreciate your understanding of this unique situation, and for your commitment to our event.
Stay tuned. We will provide more details on the rescheduled date in the coming weeks!
