LOCAL FOUNDATION HOSTS FUND RAISER AT SANTA ANITA TO SUPPORT CANCER RESOURCE CENTER

Sierra Madre, CA Oct. 26, 2011 - The Spero Foundation will be hosting their second annual “Hops for Hope” a beer and fine food pairing dinner to be held on Saturday, November 5th at the beautiful Chandelier Room at Santa Anita Park. The guests will enjoy a six course gourmet meal paired with six micro brewed / crafted beers while learning about the fundamentals of brewing the perfect glass of beer. A silent and live auction, including special sports memorabilia, will round out the evening. Proceeds from Hops for Hope will go to help the Arcadia Methodist Hospital’s “The Year Beyond” – an extensive support program for professional services for cancer patients & survivors and the Zenyatta Lounge – a comfortable place for woman who work and reside on the backstretch at Santa Anita Park.

The Spero Foundation was formed 3 years ago to raise awareness and capital for charities, bringing hope to people in need. In the last year the Foundation has donated over $25,000 to support local programs and delivered over 100 food baskets during the holiday season. Hope is not our wish…it is our goal.

Pre-sale only tickets are now available from the Foundation by contacting (626) 355-HOPE or visiting the website www.thesperofoundation.org.
