Why are there two options to participate? 

This year we are offering multiple ways to participate and gather depending on where you live and your comfort being around others. We loved how last year our virtual event allowed us to reach a larger audience. We also heard from you that you missed coming together and celebrating the work we do. 

So, you have two options. You can either watch from the comforts of your home OR purchase a ticket and watch with others, the live stream at the Hearts for Health Oregon Community Room in Enterprise. 

What will the program be like if I come to the Hearts for Health Integrated Care Center?

At 5:30 PM, we will open the doors to the Hearts for Health Oregon Community Room. This will give you time to mingle with friends, have a drink, enjoy a snack, grab a seat, and get settled. Maybe even bid on some auction items from your phone. If you plan to attend in person, you will need to purchase tickets. Tickets are $35 and limited.

Purchase Tickets Here

At 5:45 PM, we will start asking people to get settled as the pre-show starts. Last chance to grab a drink and your seat. Promptly at 6:00 pm the show will start on the screen and together we will watch the show. We ask that you bring your cellphone so that during the "paddle raise" for donations you are ready to donate through our text-to-give feature (text the code "LIVEINHOPE2022" to 44-321). As individuals give to the campaign, you will see the thermometer rise and names being recognized for giving. 

While watching the show, you can also bid on some amazing online auction packages. The auction will open on Wednesday, September 21 at noon PDT, so bidders will have the opportunity to bid on their favorite packages before the live stream event. The bidding will close after the show at noon PDT on Monday, September 26, 2022. Bid on the auction here.

Once the show ends, you will have the option to attend a short social gathering to celebrate the night in the lobby from 7:00-8:00 PM. Enjoy a drink and appetizers before heading home.

COVID-19 Safety Precautions

We plan to follow the guidance of local and federal health authorities for this event based on risk and restrictions. We may make changes to this event based on risk and restrictions. 

We ask if you are not feeling well not to attend in person even if you purchased a ticket. We highly encourage mask-wearing during the event unless actively eating or drinking.

What will the program be like if I watch the live show at home?

At 5:45 PM PDT, the event will be live on YouTube and is FREE to watch at home. The first 15 minutes are a slideshow video with tips on how to bid, how to call tech support, pictures from past events, and more. This gives you time to get ready for when the show starts at 6 PM PDT. You want to make sure you can hear the music and you have your cell phone ready so you can donate through our text-to-give feature (text the code "LIVEINHOPE2022" to 44-321).

At 6 PM PDT, Alix Zimmerman will host and welcome you to our Live in Hope Benefit from a studio in Vancouver, Washington. We will hear from our Executive Director, Chantay Jett, and share a powerful video that shows how our crisis line saves lives. 

After hearing from different voices on how our crisis line saves lives, you will be asked to give generously during the live show.  At this time, you will need your cell phone so you can give through our text-to-give feature (text the code "LIVEINHOPE2022" to 44-321). As individuals give to the campaign, you will see the thermometer rise and names being recognized for giving.
