Press Release:

The fundraising committee of the Hope Center has been putting the final touches on their more than 50 donated baskets in preparation for Saturday’s fundraiser, and donations are still rolling in. It will be a back-to-back event, starting with a basket raffle at the Masonic Community Center at 12 Bank Street in LeRoy from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Winners will be drawn starting at 3 p.m. The Masons will be cooking lunch as well. 

The second part of the day will be a gift card raffle which will take place right across the street at the Le Roy Moose Family Center, 21 Bank St.. During their Fall Harvest Dinner from 4 to 7 p.m., Hope Center volunteers will have a table set up with over a dozen gift cards to be raffled. Winners will be drawn starting at 6:30 p.m. For both events, tickets will be $5 for a sheet of 26, and winners need not be present to win. 

“We’ll be calling the lucky winners on Monday and pickups will be scheduled at the Hope Center,” said their Director, Diane Sia. “We are so excited to be partnering with two of Le Roy’s fine organizations and so grateful for the support of our community for this event! That support has come in the form of donated baskets, gift cards, or funds to purchase items for baskets.”

“We have a small army of volunteers who are very dedicated to the programs we offer such as our Fresh Start Tutoring for children in grades K-6, and our Senior Moments Lunch Club Alzheimer’s respite. Although these programs are free, there is always a cost, so fundraising is helping us continue to serve. Our volunteers have really stepped up to make our event a success; we’re praying for a big turnout this Saturday!” 

The Hope Center invites everyone to check them out on their new website:, or to follow their Facebook page where there’s always something to share about the wonderful work they do.
