HtN – Hope Lives Here Annual
Sweetheart Ball Fundraiser

 HtN – Hope Lives Here is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charitable organization that was founded Forty years ago by Greg Schilling, to help individuals and families in Teller County who were in need of temporary financial assistance. Since then, our organization has grown to include over 120 volunteers who service the needs of hundreds of clients throughout the year in Teller County and surrounding areas.

To assist the organization with this objective, we hold fundraisers every year, the most important of which by far is our annual Sweetheart Ball which brings in more than 30% of our annual revenue.

The Sweetheart Ball has always been a semi-formal gala which is arguably the signature social event of the year in Teller County. It is a place to see and be seen, as well as a truly magical evening for all of the 200 plus attendees who continue to return year after year.

This year a gourmet meal will again be provided by a local amazing restaurant. Dance music will be provided by an awesome local band that will keep you on your toes for hours. In addition, all attendees will have the opportunity to bid on silent and live auction items, which will include beautiful condos; impressive works of art from talented local artists and artisans; gift certificates to major area restaurants and businesses; sporting event tickets and many other great items.

Further adding to the elegance of the event is valet parking, coat check service. The hall will be beautifully decorated and the table settings will again look like they came directly from the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York City. A professional photographer will also be there to capture the special memories that are sure to be created at this fabulous evening.

You are invited to attend this gala event at a cost TBD per couple, or to reserve an entire table, consisting of eight guests and 2 bottles of wine, for a cost TBD. Every year the Ball is sold out quickly, so please call the HtN – Hope Lives Here office at 687-7273 to ensure that you are added to the waiting list. Everyone who attends is sure to experience a delightful evening of socializing, great food, dancing, and fun.

As in the past, sponsorships and corporate tables are available and, as always, you can make a donation if you can’t attend the live event as well as donating an auction item.

You may visit our website at or go to our Facebook page for more details on our event and our sponsorship levels.

We hope you will be able to participate in this great event for a very worthwhile cause!
