The 21st Annual Sparkle of Hope Dinner Auction will be held on Wednesday evening, October 11, 2017 to honor Robert J. Hugin, Executive Chairman of Celgene Corporation. Proceeds from the event, which are typically 90% or more of funds raised, support Community Hope's mission to aid veterans and other individuals struggling with homelessness, mental illness, addiction and poverty.

The Sparkle of Hope gala was founded in 1997 by pharmaceutical icon Fred Hassan and has raised more than $9 million to benefit Community Hope's mission. Last year's gala set a fundraising record with over $1.25 million dollars raised and more than 950 supporters.
