Hope Harbor 

December 2022-January 2023

Our yearly event, An Afternoon of Hope, will take place March 4, 2023 from 2-5pm at the Ruidoso Convention Center.

We will be continuing the Battle of the Chefs where you will be able to taste all the delicious samples and vote for your favorite chef.

We will also have a silent auction where you can bid and win one of a kind items and experiences.

In addition we are thrilled to announce that we will be having a live painting auction! As artist Rick Green paints one of his masterpieces live on stage you will be able to bid live on the work that is being done.

This years event is shaping up to be one you do not want to miss!
