After a two-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Friendswood nonprofit Hope Village is thrilled to invite
supporters back to the Hope Village Community Center campus for in-person events, starting with the seventh annual
Hope Lounge, sponsored by Big Star Cadillac Hyundai.

Hope Lounge will take place on at the Hope Village Community Center (15403 Hope Village Road) on Friday, August 26,
2022 from 7PM to 10 PM.

“We are thrilled to return to in-person events like Hope Lounge Luau,” said Samra Smith, Hope Village Director of
Community Development. “Hope Village remains a special place because of the generosity of the Bay Area community,
and we welcome this opportunity to celebrate with both new and old friends of Hope Village.”

Hope Lounge is a luau-themed event that features a steak dinner, the musical stylings of Kelly McGuire, cocktail and
wine tastings, and premium cigars on the patio. Senator Larry Taylor will lead a live auction, giving supporters the
opportunity so show support by bidding.

Tickets for Hope Lounge are $175 and may be purchased by visiting Hope Village’s Fundraising and Events page: All proceeds from the event will support The Foundation for Hope
