HOPE LODGE BASH
Hope Lodge Bash started as a thank you event in our NYC Hope Lodge kitchen celebrating the hard work of our dedicated volunteers. Over the years what began as a small end-of-year gathering has blossomed into a full scale gala where 100% of the money raised supports the upkeep of the Jerome L. Greene Family Center. This year at Bash, we're celebrating the 15th anniversary of the Hope Lodge, and all of the lives it has saved. We hope you'll join us as we raise a glass to another 15 years of excellence in healthcare.
