Cirque du Soirée: 40th Anniversary Celebration

We had a wonderful evening and 40th Anniversary celebration on January 20, 2024 at the Second Annual Cirque Du Soirée, presented by the Pedersen Family Foundation.

We’d like to express our profound and sincere appreciation to everyone whose collective efforts made this event an outstanding success!

Piper's Landing Yacht & Country Club was transformed into an enchanting haven for our community-minded supporters. The atmosphere was adorned with live statues, an exciting live auction, and an electrifying performance by the Soul Survivors band that had everyone grooving!

A special acknowledgement is due to our Presenting Sponsor, the Pedersen Family Foundation, for their indispensable contribution that helped make this event a reality. Together, we raised almost $150,000 for Project HOPE, offering vital services such as food assistance, case management, financial support, workforce development, and housing assistance to the most vulnerable residents of Martin County.

None of these accomplishments would have been possible without the incredible generosity of our sponsors!

Many thanks to the evening's auctioneer, County Commissioner Ed Ciampi, the incredible Soul Survivors Band from Chase Music 2.0, our living statues from WorldGate Entertainment, and ECP Event Rentals and Design for helping set the atmosphere!

We'd also like to thank our in-kind donors for donations that made our auction spectacular! As a special 40th Anniversary contribution, local artists Deborah Lovequist, Kiora Slate, Sue Ann Saleeby, Teagan Carregal and Stacy Ranieri each created a piece of art for the silent auction that reflects their personal response to House of Hope’s work in the community.
