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.

I was sitting down with a friend who works in sales at FedEx a few years ago and I brought up the question of Amazon replacing FedEx as a dominant player in shipping. My friend said that would never happen. FedEx isn’t worried about Amazon. At that time Amazon Prime was new. Amazon had just purchased a fleet of jets and trailers for shipping. A look at Amazon’s past was like the handwriting on the wall for me.
Recently I actually stood before a crowd of people, some skeptics and some believers, and announced that I want to be a public servant for you.
