Hope House, an organization committed to improving the quality of life for HIV-impacted individuals in the Memphis community, is having their annual event, Unwind For Hope on Thursday, October 18, 6-8 p.m. The event, sponsored by Huey’s, inferno, Just My Memphis and Mercury Valet, is held at Hope House (23 S. Idlewild St.) to celebrate women in Memphis living with HIV.

“Hope House was founded by the Junior League of Memphis, a women’s volunteer organization with a mission to serve the Memphis community. It is only fitting that we continue our legacy of strong women set out to serve others by celebrating our women at Hope House,” says Lenox Warren, Director of Development at Hope House. “The women here not only face the challenges of living with HIV/AIDS but still get up each day and strive for a better future for themselves and their children, while also supporting other women around them.”

The event is $25 for entry and offers guests wine, delicious food and access to local art for sale. There will be 17 local female artists featured at the event including artwork from some of the incredible women served by Hope House. Each artist will be donating a portion of their proceeds back to Hope House and the clients who will be selling artwork are donating 100% of their proceeds to the Hope House Emergency Fund which provides emergency financial assistance for Hope House clients. Featured artist include: Christian Alene, Kim Baldock, Erica Bodine, Fly by Christine, Lydia Frank, Patty Franz and Margaret Holifield, Funlola, Deanna Hamsley, Hope House Clients, Mary Melvin, Olivia James New, Leslie Ponder, Question The Answer, Amanda Solomon, Jessica Tinsley, Whitney Winkler, NJ Woods.
