A Screening of the Documentary, Somewhere Between is coming to Birmingham. The movie will be screened at the Rave in Vestavia on Thursday, November 15 at 7:30 p.m.

If you haven’t heard of it, Somewhere Between is a documentary about China adoptees growing up and coming of age in U.S. families. From all the amazing things I’ve heard about it, it is a must-see for adoptive families.

You can see a trailer of the movie here:

To make this happen, a certain amount of tickets must be purchased by Nov. 6. So, if you’d like to come, please go ahead and order your tickets through the link: Tickets are $10

Birdies for Charity

Villa Hope is excited to participate in Regions Charity Classic, Birdies for Charity fundraising program!

You have the opportunity to make Villa Hope a BIG winner by making a pledge of $0.02 or more per birdie or making a flat pledge of $15 or more. Villa Hope will receive every single penny of the donations generated on our behalf! Additionally, you have the chance to win great prizes when you pitch in to help us!

To create additional excitement, the Regions Tradition is giving you the chance to “Guess the Birdies” that will be made during the tournament by the Champions Tour Players! The donors who guess the correct amount of birdies are entered into a drawing to win the “Stay & Play Package” at the World Golf Hall of Fame in St. Augustine, FL! It is expected that around 900 birdies are going to be made based on past tournaments. There will also be weekly participation surprises every Friday for all donors with great prizes such as restaurant gift certificates, tickets to local sporting events, and even a $1,000 gift certificate to Diamonds Direct!

Why is your pledge important? The top ten organizations that raise the most money will receive additional funds from the Regions Tradition thanks to “Bonus Bucks” Sponsor, Red Diamond. The top 10 charities get “Bonus Bucks” with the top charity receiving $10,000 from the Regions Tradition.

Help us make that goal by pledging here –Birdies for Charity
