Although Operation HOPE has a number of our own projects and initiatives designed to help others in need, we also love to partner with other groups and individuals, both locally and internationally, to help make a difference. A couple of months ago, we received an email from a young lady named Renee Ramirez who was preparing a trip to Cambodia to work with the She Rescue Home there. She asked if we would be able to donate any supplies for her to give to the ladies at She Rescue and we were very grateful for the opportunity to help out.

Operation HOPE would like to send out a huge thank-you to all who were involved in this year's Operation HOPE Golf Tournament on Monday, Sept 23rd! We had a great time out on the course and were able to give away some great raffle prizes afterwards. This has been our biggest golf tournament yet and we can't wait to see everybody out on the Rawls Course next year.
Operation HOPE would like to say a HUGE CONGRATULATIONS to Bill Dubose of Abernathy TX for being picked as the winner of the 2015 BMW 320i courtesy of Alderson European Motors here in Lubbock. Bill purchased the winning ticket (ticket #0256) and was fortunate to have many friends attending the Ninth Annual Operation HOPE Banquet who were able to inform him even before the event was over. Below are a few photos of Bill and his wife picking up the car:
