The dinner party encouraged guests to deck out their tables — and themselves — all while supporting and raising funds for Matthew’s Hope.
WINTER GARDEN From 1920s flappers to Mickey and Minnie Mouse, guests at Matthew’s Hope’s fourth annual Harvest for Hope Garden Party pulled out all the stops to decorate their tables — and dress accordingly. The annual dinner party — held this year on Saturday, Nov. 18 — is a fundraiser for the ministry, which helps facilitate opportunities to homeless and struggling individuals who are ready to move toward self sustainability and independence. It’s also a friendly competition that pits guests head-to-head to win the Best Dressed Table Award. This year, the Orlando Sentinel’s Scott Maxwell was the emcee, and comedian Bob Smiley provided the laughter with his stand-up routine.
