image004WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (APRIL 3, 2017) – On Tuesday, May 2, Crisis Control Ministry will host its 27th annual “Hope du Jour” fundraiser, benefiting the programs and services provided to families throughout Forsyth County.

Full-service restaurants, bakeries, coffee shops and more in Winston-Salem, Kernersville, Lewisville and Clemmons will come together to support Crisis Control by donating 10% of their proceeds from the entire day on May 2 to the organization.

“Hope du Jour has become such a great tradition in our community,” said Margaret Elliott, Executive Director of Crisis Control Ministry.  “We are so grateful for all of the restaurant partners that we have each year, our generous sponsors, and for all of the wonderful folks that dine out for Hope du Jour to make this day a success.”

Over 130 area restaurants participate in Hope du Jour each year, making it convenient for folks anywhere in the area to find a spot to eat to support the work done by Crisis Control.  Diners are also encouraged to host “Restaurant Parties” by recruiting a group of friends to eat together at one of the participating restaurants.

“Community is very important to us,” said Mary Haglund, owner of Mary’s Gourmet Diner in Winston-Salem.  “We believe in supporting those in our city who are in crisis whenever we can. Hope du Jour makes that an easy goal to achieve.”
