Boots & Bow Ties

WORDS Bryan Thompson and Catherine Frederick

Like many local nonprofits, the majority of the Hope Campus operating budget is funded through community donations. Some months are plentiful while others find the budget stretched beyond limits. To raise much needed funds, they are hosting an new event, Boots & Bow Ties, on October 21, 2023!

Boots & Bow Ties is the theme, so you’re sure to find hay bales and boots galore. Everyone in attendance is encouraged to don their favorite pair of boots, and of course, a bow tie! The atmosphere will be lively, complete with awesome music from Mr. Cabbage Head and the Screaming Radishes, lots of dancing, delicious food catered by Betsey Joannides Catering, and a silent auction (we hear a generous family donated their condo in Indian Shores, Florida for an entire week)! All the fun takes place at The Bakery District in downtown Fort Smith – the perfect setting for all the festivities.

Hope Campus wants our community to know that stability, wholeness, and restoration is possible! The direction for their mission has never been clearer; however, they need our support to continue this worthy calling. At Hope Campus, dedication is steadfast, resolve unwavering, and hearts are full of hope!

Hope Campus seeks to be the stabilizing factor for those in need to rebuild their lives and restore self-sufficiency and wholeness. Their mission impacts our local community in a way that empowers our neighbors in a healthy and prosperous, positive direction.

One hundred percent of the proceeds from Boots & Bow Ties goes to Hope Campus to support their programs and services. Tickets are $75 per person, $125 per couple, or $600 for a table of eight. Visit for tickets and to learn more!
