The Evening of Hope

The Pavilion at the Angus Barn

With special guest and keynote speaker Jane Pauley,
renowned journalist, author, and mental health advocate.

An annual charity dinner and auction benefiting The Foundation of Hope for Research & Treatment of Mental Illness, the Evening of Hope takes place at the resplendent Pavilion at the Angus Barn in Raleigh, North Carolina. The event features an elegant 5-course dinner—served with exceptional wine pairings—prepared by Iron Chef Walter Royal, as well as a live auction, a silent auction, and a keynote speaker.

Through your efforts and contributions, we can continue investing in the community initiatives and clinical research projects that will help reshape the landscape for the mentally ill.
