Open Hand Capital Campaign to Fund Future Expansion

Annual Stakeholder's Reception marks Official Kick-Off of Capital Campaign
Open Hand's annual Stakeholder's Reception was held on May 24th at the site of our future expansion. While the site is raw warehouse space, it served as a showcase for the expansion and signaled the official kick-off of the Capital Campaign. Key stakeholders, including collaborative partners, Board members, deeply engaged donors and volunteers, were given an opportunity to visualize the future of Open Hand through a multimedia presentation, architectural renderings and floor plans.
