Purpose of the Organization

Hope in the Valley strives to bring the community and business owners together to raise money for the American Cancer Society. For several years, Renelle Oldenburg, owner of Angelus Salon, has hosted a VIP Event where they performed a live runway hair and fashion show with all the proceeds going to the American Cancer Society. With the desire to do more, Renelle expanded the event to the community creating an exclusive sit-down dinner with a silent auction, raffles, a fashion show and live entertainment.  Hope in the Valley began and had over 1,200 people attend during the first year. Other events are held throughout the year to help raise funds for this cause and continue to bring the community together.
