2017 Wine for Hope to Honor Youth Mentor 
Raymond Marrow Named H.O.P.E. Award Recipient


(Youngstown, OH) The Hope Foundation of the Mahoning Valley is proud to announce the selection of its 2017 H.O.P.E. Award for Lifetime Achievement recipient. Raymond Marrow will be honored at the 7th annual Wine for Hope on Friday, April 28, 2017. The event at The Lake Club in Poland will recognize Marrow for being Honorable. Outstanding. Philanthropic. Excellent.

The selection committee chose Marrow to join the prestigious ranks of our past recipients George Gabriel (2016), Jack Gocala, Sr. (2015) and the late Henry Nemenz (2014). His nomination highlighted the Youngstown native’s work creating not one, but two youth mentoring programs in the last 10 years. Both are offered after school and on weekends and combine exercise with worship to keep kids off the streets.

The evening will be emceed by WKBN 27 First News This Morning Anchor Dan Martin. Guests will enjoy a full dinner, wine tasting in a commemorative glass, entertainment by Simply Ed Productions and the awards presentation. All proceeds from the event, including a silent auction and raffle baskets, will help better the lives of chronically and terminally ill children in the Valley.

The 7th Annual Wine for Hope will take place on Friday, April 28 from 6:30-11pm at The Lake Club located at 1140 Paulin Rd. Poland, Ohio 44514.
