On June 1st, 2019, HopeLKN held a comedy night featuring comedians Andrew Stanley and Ed Wiley. In addition to exposure to the 400+ people in attendance, the evening was a financial blessing to Above & Beyond Missions, Caterpillar Ministries and HopeLKN. One HUGE take-a-way for us was to see what we can accomplish when multiple organizations, churches, individuals, and businesses come together! 

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

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!


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