The Holiday Hope Benefit strives to give local children a message of hope during the holidays. But, also to offer support for youth development on a daily basis year-round while also providing educational opportunities. The St. Croix Hotel and Tourism Association along with the St. Croix Chamber of Commerce host this annual fundraiser which benefits the Marine Corps Toys for Tots, the Boys & Girls Club of the Virgin Islands, CASA of the Virgin Islands, and the Patrick Henry Hospitality Scholarship Fund.
The event has raised more than $50,000 over the years that have directly benefited the youth of our St. Croix community in many ways. Transportation vans were purchased for the Boys and Girls Club, and scholarships were awarded to those interested in a career in hotel and tourism and culinary arts. The Annual Holiday Hope Benefit is a festive night filled with great friends, complimentary hors d’oeuvres, live music, and live and silent auctions including items such as gift certificates, hotel/air travel packages, catered dinners and much, much, more.
