WASHINGTON - Washington Redskins Head Coach Jay Gruden and his wife Sherry are helping Mobile Hope founder Donna Fortier host the inaugural Harmonizing for Hope to raise money for homeless youths.
The fundraising event will be held at the Bungalow Lakehouse in Sterling, Virginia at 5 p.m. on Aug. 25.
Harmonizing for Hope will feature celebrity judges, an auction and a karaoke competition.
"We wanted to get involved in our own community. We had children between 18 and 26 ourselves, and to find out there were over 2,000 precariously placed youths just in our backyard really struck a chord with us," said Sherry Gruden.
Mobile Hope of Loudoun is a bus that pulls into parking lots to provide 18 to 26 year olds with living essentials including personal hygiene items, medical care and school supplies. The charity has since opened a center in Leesburg where adolescents can come for jobs and living arrangements.
Tickets Harmonizing for Hope cost $50. To purchase tickets, call (703) 771-1400.
Anyone looking to get involved is encouraged to donate items or volunteer their time. For more information, visit the Mobile Hope website.
