Love fishing? How about BBQ? Or maybe you prefer great entertainment, live auctions and raffle prize giveaways? If so, we have one event you will not want to miss! This year, New Hope Ministries is back with another fun filled, family friendly event for the whole community. The Annual Fishing Banquet is a night dedicated to the people of the community New Hope Ministries is proud to call home. To them, their community is more like family than anything else! With food, music, prizes and more, the banquet is perfect for people of all ages and open to everyone. For all the details you’ll need to know, please read on.
The When, Where, and Why
On Saturday July 13th at 6pm, New Hope Ministries will be hosting their 11th Annual Fishing Banquet. The banquet will be held in New Hope’s event center, located at 7675 Davis Blvd. Naples, Florida, with doors opening at 5pm. Tickets are available now and the low price of $20 will buy you the best BBQ dinner you will ever have, along with drinks and entries into the raffle drawings. In total, there will be over 100 prizes given away and at the end of the evening, there will be a live auction you won’t want to miss! To give you an idea of what you can win, raffle prizes will consist of charter trips, fishing accessories, boat accessories and even more gear from Bass Pro Shops. But that’s not all! At the end of the evening they will announce the grand prize winner, who will receive is a boat, complete with a motor and trailer! So how can you go wrong? As for the auction, their will be roughly 20 items open for bids throughout the night. In past years, they have auctioned off trips, lunch with Fishing Pro Roland Martin, jet ski rentals and more. Auctions can always be fun and exciting and add a little extra flare to any event. What makes this particular auction all the more exhilarating, is that all funds raised will go directly to next year’s Night to Shine event! For those who don’t know, Night to Shine is a prom night sponsored by the Tim Tebow Foundation, open to everyone ages 14+ who have any kind of special needs. Dreamscape Foundation was lucky enough to team up and take part in last year’s event. Our whole team was blown away at the amazing job New Hope Ministries did and even more so from the look of genuine happiness on the face of everyone in attendance. What makes it a night like no other is that New Hope Ministries isn’t alone in going above and beyond. On the same night, over 655 locations in all 50 states and 24 countries around the world, give the special needs community their time to shine! To show how deeply they care for their community, the folks at New Hope Ministries began hosting this event 11 years ago, as a way to bring people together and give back to the community. The event is not to be confused with a fundraiser but instead a way to say thank you. It is always a phenomenal time and if you don’t believe me, just ask one of the 700+ people who attended last year!
