Welcome to HopeLKN !

Where YOU can make a difference and bring HOPE to your community.  (Our goal is to provide you with a few ways to do so!) 


A special thanks to iHeart Media Virginia-Carolinas for partnering with HopeLKN!

About

Overall mission:

HopeLKN exists to bring HOPE to our community by partnering with local charities and non-profits who are making a difference in the Lake Norman Area. We do this by raising awareness of these organizations as well as financial support through fundraisers and community events leveraging technology, music, and the arts.

This is accomplished through the implementation of a three-tiered approach:

(If you like visuals, Click Here!)

1. Community Awareness: The creation and application of local programs that raise community awareness of HopeLKN and our overall mission while meeting a need in the community, as well as establishing local for-profit businesses for additional community awareness and creates income to assist with basic operational expenses that allow our businesses and ministries to continue. These currently include the following:

  • RePurpose
  • Care Pack (coming in 2018)

2. Focus Events: These events are designed to have a narrowed community focus, potentially with a specific sponsor. This allows for the acting sponsor to be intentional about being present in their community, as well as the opportunity for HopeLKN to not only bring about more community awareness of our overall mission, but also to raise funds that will allow us to organize and implement “Outreach Events”.

 3. Outreach Events: These events are specifically designed with the intent to raise awareness and monetary support for our Strategic Partners. Our amazing partner organizations are already positively impacting the community each and every day. We value their efforts and wish to assist them with their mission to serve our community well. Outreach Events are primarily funded by focus events as well as business sponsorships. Because these events are on a grander scale, they give us the opportunity to multiply the money raised during our focus events, which is then distributed evenly among our Strategic Partners.

SCHEDULED EVENTS

**There are no currently scheduled events. However, we are in the planning process with a few great ideas!  If you would like to be a sponsor for an upcoming event or have any questions, please let us know HERE!

 


PAST EVENTS

On St. Patrick’s Day of 2018, HopeLKN held a comedy event benefitting Bags of Hope- a nonprofit that provides food for school kids who struggle with food insecurity on the weekends. Not only were the comedians HILARIOUS, but just a few dollars short of $1,000 was raised for Bags of Hope through the generosity of those who attended this focus event! Thank you!

 

“Hope for the Holidays” was a two-day, live music event held in Birkdale Village. The purpose of the event was to provide entertainment for the community as well as to create awareness for a select group of our strategic partners. The entire “Hope For The Holidays” event was broadcasted all over the world via live stream, hosted on www.HopeLKN.com.

During the event, there was an immediate opportunity to offer financial support to these Non-Profits by visiting the HopeLKN booths in Birkdale and at Christmas in Davidson. It was then replayed in its entirety on December 18th & 19th during the same time frame and with the same opportunities to give all month long!

As a result of the “Hope for the Holidays” event and the generosity of our community, we were able to raise $103, 393! These funds were then evenly distributed among the four participating Non-Profits. THANK YOU!


POTENTIAL  EVENTS IN THE MAKING…..

The HopeLKN “Creative Events Team” is currently working out details on the following POTENTIAL events for 2018 & 2019.
