6th Annual Humor for HOPE Early bird price - $30 per person (plus a 2 beverage minimum)  Regular price - $35 per person (plus a 2 beverage minimum)  At the door price - $40 per person (plus a 2 beverage minimum)  The HOPE Program lifts New Yorkers out of poverty through training, employment, and career advancement. The men and women we serve overcome significant challenges – communities of poverty and violence, low educational attainment, histories of substance abuse and more. Our graduates secure jobs in the fields of food service and prep, security, construction, maintenance, animal care, and more. They also secure jobs in environmental construction and maintenance, addressing two critical needs at once.   Who/where proceeds from event will benefit: The HOPE Program consistently achieves results among the strongest in the field – most recently 75% job placement, 95% 90-day retention and 78% one-year retention – making lasting contributions to the sustainability of New York City communities. In fact, HOPE achieves top performance with regard to long-term job retention, based on results from a recent survey of workforce development organizations nationwide. But the true impact of our work is reflected in the words of our grads:  “When I got locked up for selling drugs, I decided I wanted a better life. At HOPE, everyone is positive and looking to the future. They help me stay on track.” – Ronald “I work on an energy auditing team, where I make sure lighting systems are properly equipped with energy-saving technology. It’s great to be moved into my own apartment, saving money, and reflecting on my dream of managing my own construction company. My mom tells me how proud she is. That means everything.” – Takoya Please visit our website if you’d like to learn more about how we lift New Yorkers out of poverty! LINEUP COMING SOON!
