On March 23, over 150 guests enjoyed an amazing evening at the 2017 Homeless to Hopeful event at the Oriental Wok. Bishop Foys, Diocese of Covington, gave the opening blessing and guests enjoyed dinner and bidding on silent auction items. The March Madness Bourbon Trail auction was a huge success with guests bidding on etched bourbon bottles from their favorite local college teams to get in the March madness spirit. The highest bidder won the one of kind ESNKY etched bottle. During desert, guests watched an incredible video story of Jack, a graduate of the transitional housing program last summer. We also honored John Carey as past President for his service to ESNKY.
This evening was possible due to the hard work of our committee; Event Chair Dr. Carson Castleman, Betsy Awadalla, Sr. Janet Bucher, Drf. Susan K. Cook, Brandon Coppage, Beth McCubbin, Maria Maile, Christy Noll and Lisa Raterman.
