And a quick favor: If you use Facebook, please go to Town and Country Credit Union's event page each of the remaining days in October and click to vote for Hope Acts in this grant competition.

Thank you for your support,

Join us at the Woodfords Club, Portland on October 18th!
We are looking forward to seeing many friends and supporters on Thursday, October 18 at the Woodfords Club, Portland. Celebrating Home is a fundraiser for Hope Acts' housing, English classes and other immigrant support programs. Please join us for food, music, a silent auction and an opportunity for us to gather and celebrate everyone who now calls the Greater Portland community "home." We celebrate the cultures and traditions of new Mainers' previous homes, which hold special memories for them.

Tickets are $40 per person. We also invite you to join our event sponsors and other donors whose contributions cover the cost of tickets for our residents and students. You can purchase your ticket here, or send a check to Hope Acts, PO Box 7615, Portland ME 04112 with the names of attendees.

Julia Trujillo Luengo, Portland's Director of Economic Opportunity, will be honored with the "Community Builder" award for her outstanding work raising the profile and contributions of immigrants to the city and facilitating partnerships between immigrant support organizations and Portland's business community. 

Volunteer Bethany Smart will be honored with the "Heart of our Home" award. Bethany has deeply immersed herself in the immigrant community, gaining an understanding of both the gifts and needs of the community and the ways we can all benefit by supporting one another.
