Place of Hope Plans Vintage Circus Hope Bash

Place of Hope’s signature Hope Bash will be a whimsical, light-hearted affair with the theme of “vintage circus” for 2018.

The 12th Annual Hope Bash will be held at 6:30 p.m., March 9, 2018, at PGA National Resort & Spa, 400 Avenue of the Champions, Palm Beach Gardens, FL 33418. Tickets are $350 per person. To purchase tickets, visit

Co-Chairs Heather Bretzlaff and Kim Havlicek return to lead a stellar committee for Place of Hope’s largest fundraising social event.

“We are excited for one of the season’s most anticipated parties,” said Co-Chair Heather Bretzlaff. “Kim and I feel fortunate to be included in an organization that changes children’s lives, gives them hope, love and a new future, and continuously enriches our broader community. Place of Hope is a gift sent from heaven, and we are all here to nourish and foster that sentiment.”

Hope Bash will also feature a live and silent auction, dinner and dancing, and a special Bid from the Heart.

“Our signature event helps us to care for the more than 340 children and youth, which includes their clothing, food, educational needs, recreational needs and emotional needs,” said Place of Hope Founding Executive Director Charles Bender. “Without the support of co-chairs and committee members, we would not be able to turn the tide of abuse and neglect among our state’s most vulnerable citizens, our children.”
