New Jammin’4 Hope virtual concert introduced amid COVID-19
During the first week of November, HopeLink of Southern Nevada (HopeLink) will host its annual, weeklong fundraiser, HopeWeek and introduce Jammin’4 Hope, a livestream event. HopeWeek runs from Sunday, Nov. 1 through Sunday, Nov. 8 to celebrate the community and raise funds for those facing housing insecurities during the holidays. Additionally, HopeLink will kick-off Jammin’4 Hope on Nov. 8, a livestream concert telethon to continue raising funds while also supporting entertainment industry workers and the community at large struggling amidst COVID-19.

“Despite COVID-19 restrictions, we are extremely excited for this year’s HopeWeek and to introduce our new Jammin’4 Hope virtual event featuring entertainers from across the state and country,” said Stacey Lockhart, executive director of HopeLink. “As we head into the holidays, our community is more dependent on us now than they have been before, particularly when facing the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. Our goal is to raise $100,000 to stabilize these seniors and families during our coldest months as we expect CARES funding to end on Dec. 31.”
Committed to providing continued housing relief to southern Nevada’s most vulnerable populations, HopeWeek encompasses a week of events dedicated to fundraising and thanking volunteers and donors. To support the event, HopeLink is seeking community sponsors, endorsements and donations for HopeWeek events.
