Live It Up!
October 19, 2017
Live It Up! is the signature fundraising event of Help Hope Live. The annual benefit is
now in its fifth year and has raised more than $300,000 to assist Help Hope Live with its
mission to support community-based fundraising for people with unmet medical and
related expenses due to cell and organ transplants or catastrophic injuries and illnesses. In
2016, Help Hope Live received a four-star rating from Charity Navigator for the thirteenth
year in a row!
Over the past 34 years, campaigns organized by Help Hope Live have raised more than
$123 million to pay patient expenses, helping to facilitate over 3,000 transplants and
improve quality of life for 900 catastrophically injured individuals.
Live It Up! is an annual celebration of Help Hope Live’s impact and the generous
supporters who help make it possible. The evening will feature dinner and drinks, live
entertainment and the Help, HOPE, Live Awards presentation, which honors community
heroes who prove why our mission matters.
