This year is a special one as we mark the 10th anniversary of the Abbey’s Hope CharitableFoundation. Over these 10 years, we have accomplished powerful and amazing; things. In large part due to the support we receive not only throughout the year, but at our annual fundraising event. With this special anniversary, we are doing things a bit different this year.

September 11th: Abbey’s Hope Golf Tournament at Olympic Hills Golf Club.  We will be hosting a 9-hole tournament in the morning and our 18-hole “Abbey’s Shamble” at 1pm.  A social gathering with heavy appetizers and drinks will follow the golf for the participants only.

November 11th: Instead of our big party following the golf event as in years’ past, we are throwing an even bigger party at  the Varsity Theater  with food, drinks, musical entertainment and our silent and live auction. In true Abbey’s Hope fashion, both events are guaranteed to be a  great time! Mark your calendars and we hope to see you there! Click here to register & learn more about both events.

Through your generosity each year we've been able to accomplish so much including supporting swim lessons for children at the YMCAs, creating and airing powerful PSAs and developing educational materials about pool drain safety and active supervision that are distributed nationwide.  With your support we have some big things happening for 2017... stay tuned! You all help make Abbey's hope a reality! Thank you! 

The Dragonfly Story

Below the surface of a quiet pond lived a colony of water bugs. They were happy, living far from the sun. But they noticed that occasionally, a member of their colony would climb up a lily stalk and disappear from sight, never to return. Where do you suppose she went? wondered a water bug.
