Virtual Art of the Vine

Our 19th Annual Art of the Vine has gone virtual!

New Hope for Kids invites you to a 1-hour virtual fundraiser on October 23rd! Proceeds from this event will be used to continue our mission to support children and families grieving the death of a loved one and to grant wishes to children with life-threatening illnesses in Central Florida.

Please join us from the comfort of your own home, from your office, or during your evening walk in the park as our generous friends at the newly renovated Fields BMW Winter Park dealership broadcast live to raise funds for the important services we provide. As our virtual guest, you will enjoy inspiring stories of hope, a tour of our beautiful building, a wine tasting, exciting auctions, and seeing the winning ticket drawn for a brand new 2020 BMW X1.

There is no cost to attend this year, and everyone’s invited. All proceeds from the auction and BMW drawing benefit the grief and wish programs of New Hope for Kids. You may also contribute without participating, and donations of any amount are welcome and appreciated. click here to donate

While Covid-19 may prevent us from gathering in person this year, we hope you (and your friends, colleagues and family) will join us virtually for an hour of inspiration benefiting New Hope for Kids!

Virtual Silent Auction is now OPEN!

If you’re looking for something fun, useful or creative, come wander through our online auction and view a wide selection of items just waiting for your bid. The virtual silent auction is now open and will close at 7:20pm on Friday, October 23rd.
