Five tables of 8 are currently available for Hope Blooms 2020, to be held on August 26. Be sure to let us know ASAP if you'd like to attend, before those seats are gone!
While everyone's home under the pandemic quarantine, we've had some extra time to check out our own website and realized how dreadfully out of date I've kept this news tab. No time like the present to fix that!
So what's new at HHH? For starters, we're temporarily closed. When visiting restrictions at the hospitals have been lifted and the local health department advises that we're safe to reopen, our two locations will happily accept guests with hospitalized loved ones or treatment of their own. While the homes are closed, we've been doing some cleaning and painting, too.
Also because of the Coronavirus, our annual fundraiser, Hope Blooms, has been rescheduled for August 29. Previously purchased tickets are good for this date, and more tickets are available at our "Hope Blooms" tab here on the website.
While we realize most of our supporters will not be in a financial position to support HHH through donations at this time, we are still going forward with our Endowment Fund Awareness Raffle. Only 300 tickets at $100 each are available, and five incredible prizes will be awarded on August 31.
The community's health and well being are in my prayers daily. I can't wait to get back to meeting new guests and providing free medical lodging near both hospitals in Port Huron.
A huge thanks to our Radio, Diamond and Platinum level sponsors! Providing FREE hospital lodging in Port Huron is possible because of generous donors like you!

Diamond Level: McLaren Port Huron Medical Staff
Platinum Level: Xtreme Powerline Construction
Thanks again! We can't wait to see you at Hope Blooms!
