A Promise of Hope Affair 2012

A Promise of Hope Affair was an event that provided an opportunity to support PAF. The event included dinner and dancing, a silent auction as well as the chance to bid on scholarships for our Scholarships for Survivors program. All proceeds went PAF to continue the day-to-day work of helping patients through our Direct Patient Services resolve their insurance, job retention and/or debt crisis matters relative to their diagnosis of a chronic, life-threatening or debilitating disease.

THE EVENT

The eleventh annual A Promise of Hope Affair was held February 25, 2012 at the Newport News Marriott at City Center and featured dinner, live and silent auctions, and dancing to music provided Slapwater, The Jim Newsom Quartet and special guest Julie Delgado.
