Two weeks ago we had the honor of presenting the 2014 Hope Celebrity Weekend Extravaganza: Mardi Gras in Hampton Roads. The event is an annual fundraiser that is hosted by Still Hope Foundation, Inc. The weekend was held at multiple venues from September 19-21, 2014 and played host to many celebrities within the fields of television, film, NBA, NFL and MLB (oh and of course all of our local celebrities). I’m going to share some quick photos from the weekend.
The weekend was preluded by the Hope Sponsor Reception and Women in Excellence Awards ceremony that was co-presented by Suntrust Bank.
The event was held at Nauticus.
The official start of the weekend’s activities was the Hope Masquerade Ball which was held at the Renaissance Portsmouth-Norfolk Waterfront Hotel.
Saturday’s event consisted of the Hope Celebrity Casino Night which was held at Nauticus and the USS Wisconsin.
Unfortunately, the Hope Celebrity Golf Tournament had to be cancelled due to the weather, but we were still able to get out golfers together to enjoy each other at a private reception which was held at our host hotel- Norfolk Waterside Marriott.
The finale of the weekend was the Hope Jazz Concert which was hosted by Lamman Rucker and featured Jeffrey Osbourne, Rick Braun, Norman Brown, Gerald Albright and Gregg Karukus. Comedian Alex Scott also graced the stage with his comedic offerings.
