The Game of Hope – In It To Win It – The Annual Circle of Hope Afternoon Tea Returns

by | Aug 30, 2018 | Community

 On October 6, Circle of Hope will be hosting their Annual Afternoon Tea fundraising and awareness event. This event features beautifully decorated tables, eloquent tea sandwiches and refreshments, and will include a Silent Auction. This year’s event will be held at the beautiful Hyatt Regency Valencia, and anticipates approximately 250 guests at this event. This year’s theme is “The Game of Hope – In It To Win It” and tables this year will be decorated with the theme of Board Games. Every year, tables are lavishly decorated with beautiful centerpieces, themes, and ornate tea sets.
This year’s Chairs are Alexander Hafizi, Maggie-Mae Laufman, and Caren Kahan. “We three had the same vision of making this year’s event bigger and better than ever before. We are hoping to add more participants, more sponsors, and more community members to help raise awareness for this beautiful organization.” states Caren Kahan. Title Sponsor, Nola Aronson from SCV Advanced Audiology has returned for another year, as this is an organization near and dear to her heart.
The funds raised will go towards supporting members of our community who are fighting their battle with cancer. Circle of Hope provides emotional, educational and financial assistance along with supportive wellness therapies to the Santa Clarita Valley cancer community. This past year, Circle of Hope opened Hope’s Haven, a Cancer Wellness Center here in SCV that gives patients, families, and survivors support in our community. “After launching Hope’s Haven, we have had an outpouring of support from our local community, and it’s been so amazing. The city has truly embraced Circle of Hope and Hope’s Haven with open arms.” states Alexander Hafizi.
“Our collaborative goal is to bring more awareness in our local community about Circle of Hope, and to shine the light on this beautiful organization that is truly changing lives, even saving lives every day.” states Maggie-Mae Laufman.
This event kicks off the beginning of their on-going 30 Days of Hope, where companies and people in the city of Santa Clarita host fundraisers on every day during the month of October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Tickets are $85 and can be purchased on the website. If you are interested in more information, please visit
