Press Release – A Spring of Hope, “The Power of Hope” Gala

A Spring of Hope, a South Florida foundation since 2007, is pleased to present their first annual Gala, “The Power of Hope.”  The festivities will take place at the Seagate Country Club in Delray Beach on March 21, 2014 beginning at 6:00pm.

The South African Ambassador, Mr.Ebrahim Rasool is our guest of honor.  The Ambassador will be speaking at the event sharing stories of his times with the late Nelson Mandela.

A Spring of Hope is an international non-governmental organization (NGO) dedicated to the sustainable development of rural South African communities. We partner with rural schools to provide them with clean water sources for drinking, sanitation, irrigation, and food preparation to improve health conditions, combat poverty, promote education, and create self-sustainability. To work toward building community capacity, we are committed to providing instruction in permaculture and sanitation and hygiene at each of our partner schools. In addition, we build long-term relationships with our partner schools to support them in a variety of efforts including after school programs and economic development projects. Our approach takes seriously each school’s individual problems and works collaboratively with government, schools, and NGOs to create social and economic development. To date, we have supported 18 different rural schools in the Limpopo and Mpumalanga provinces in South Africa. Our local team maintains contact with each of our partner schools to ensure that each school gets closer to their own goals. In 2012, A Spring of Hope became a registered NPO in the country of South Africa.

The gala will be the first of its kind in South Florida featuring an elegant “South African Braai” (grilled dinner) inclusive of sundowners (drinks and appetizers at dusk on a game drive).  A wine tasting of South African wines will be presented during dinner. They will also have unique live auction items including an all expenses paid 10-day trip to the Kruger area in South Africa staying at two five star lodges. A very special musical dinner with Jason Derulo (singer and songwriter) and Jordin Sparks (American Idol winner) is sure to be a hit!  Private flying lessons, a St. Maarten vacation and gorgeous South African art plus other exclusive items will also be presented.

Tickets are $150.00/person. Please contact for ticket, table information, and corporate sponsorship, or purchase tickets on the Events page.

We would like to extend a sincere thanks to our generous supporters.
