This years event will take place on Saturday July 13th 2024.  Our annual event is an outdoor, festival, sporting event, that combines a volleyball tournament with all day music.

We at HOPE are looking for some new members of our planning team. The commitment is not large- Approximately 30  hours over a 4 to 5 month period, and about 20 of those hours would take place the week of July 8th to July 19th. We are looking for volunteers that are dependable and reliable, committed to the full 5 months. We need volunteers with confidence and great leadership skills.

We require all volunteers to meet with the Event Coordinator and Executive Director, to be interviewed so that we can give more information to the applying Volunteer, to see if this opportunity will fit, and which position you would be best to fill. 

Current committees that we are looking to fill are:

-Parking
