11th Annual Evening of Hope

The Sheldon Concert Hall

Thanks to our amazing friends and sponsors, the 11th Evening of Hope was a huge success. The event included cocktails, a seated dinner, and a musical performance by acclaimed jazz pianist and composer Peter Martin and up-and-coming singer Brian Owens. More than 230 guests came out to support Hope Happens and to enjoy an amazing performance of the Peter Martin Trio.

All proceeds benefit the Hope Center for Neurological Disorders at Washington University School of Medicine.

Shout Out For Hope -
Join a Movement for Treatments and Cures

Everyone knows someone who has experienced a neurodegenerative disorder—ALS, Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, Huntington's, Epilepsy, Multiple Sclerosis, brain and spinal cord injury, Cerebral Palsy, Muscular Dystrophy, stroke, and many more. We share that bond of knowing someone. Now we share hope. Our hope is to control these disorders by finding treatments and cures

Like us, these disorders are also connected. When scientists collaborate and discover breakthroughs for one disorder, that success can lead to treatments and cures for another... and another... That's why we have a reason to rise, a reason to collaborate, a reason to start a movement, a reason to hope. We call this movement Shout Out for Hope
