Our annual signature event will take place on Saturday, February 17, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Suite Sixty on Two Notch Road. The Hope Is Day Party will gather friends, supporters, survivors, and colleagues to commemorate Black History Month and celebrate The Hive’s growing impact on South Carolina survivors of sexual assault and intimate partner violence.

We can’t think of a better way to acknowledge the ongoing accomplishments of African Americans in South Carolina and the growing influence The Hive has on individuals, particularly those in Black and brown communities, who have experienced trauma and seek guidance and support to rebuild their lives.
The event will feature signature cocktails and mouthwatering sweets by the Dessert Bar, a decadent brunch by Chef Lawrence, and live entertainment by the Jon Rooks Trio and Rod Foster & Company featuring Brittany Turnipseed.
We will present the inaugural Hope Is awards to three deserving individuals:
Eboné Ivory, J.D. Candidate Charleston School of Law, Hope Is Activism Award
Michael Lewis, General Manager Stanley Martin Homes, Hope Is Leadership Award
Katherine Davis, Senior Philanthropic Relationship Manager, Prisma Health Midlands Foundation, Hope Is Philanthropy Award
“In many ways, survivors of sexual assault and intimate partner violence are modern-day heroes,” says Chio Nunez, Philanthropy & Partnerships Officer. “It requires resilience, mental toughness, optimism, and hope to recover from the trauma associated with physical and mental violence. Our Hope Is event reminds us that the work of healing is never complete and that all of us, survivors or not, can benefit and grow from the positive influences of others.”
On behalf of The Hive team, please join us at the Party to Restore Hope. We’re all in this together!
