FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Is it really free to attend?
Yes, our virtual gala is free to attend this year as this setup allows more people to participate beyond the confines of an event space. Instead of charging a ticket price in order to gain access to the live program link, we hope each guest feels compelled to financially support our teen moms through a $250 donation (or whatever you can afford), or by setting up a recurring monthly donation for the upcoming year. You may make a gala donation at registration (above on this page) or set up a monthly donation as a Bedrock Builder here. We understand this has been a challenging year for everyone so we are grateful for any donation amount you can afford.
How do I register?
The registration options are near the top of this page. Upon registration, you will receive event updates via email and/or text (on an opt-in basis) and gain access to the link for our auction page on Monday, November 2nd. Registration will remain open until the close of the gala.
*Sponsorship options are also available. If you, your business or a charitable organization are interested in being a sponsor, click here to read about those options.
What is the Watch Party experience like?
We will miss seeing many of you in-person this year, but we believe you can still create a fun environment at home with a few of your closest friends! We will be providing a Hope House Gala dinner package for all Platinum, Gold and Silver Sponsors. The package will include a prime rib roast and wine & champagne for 10 people. A recipe card will be included to help make dinner preparations easy!
Watch Party Sponsors ($1500 level) will be provided dinner for six, more info coming soon.
For all registrants at any level, we will be providing creative ideas for Watch Party hosts prior to the event to help you plan a fun Maskerade event in your homes. Consider registering as a Watch Party Sponsor, or register at any donation amount and we will still provide information for how you can interact with Hope House virtually and create a memorable night for you and your friends.
We want this event to inspire and encourage you and your guests as we share how your contributions are truly making a difference in the lives of our teen moms and their children, especially amid the extreme economic challenges they have faced this year.

WHY GIVE TO THE GALA
Our donors, who we refer to as our champions, have come alongside our teen moms in incredible ways this year. At the start of COVID-19 and during the economic challenges that have followed, your generosity has enabled us to keep our doors open so we can meet their essential needs and keep them moving forward.
Our annual gala brings in nearly 25% of our annual operating budget. Your contributions to the 2020 Maskerade Hope House Gala allows us to support over 250 teen moms in the metro-Denver area.
Every year, table hosts at our in-person gala event have invited new people to take part in the mission to empower teen moms at Hope House. We hope you do the same as you host a Watch Party, allowing new people to learn about Hope House and take part in this incredible mission.
