Champions of Hope Weekend

Samaritan’s Feet International is a global humanitarian organization pursuing the goal of a world with zero shoeless children, and Premier Sports has been a vital partner for the organization in both events and major donor development. Premier produces and manages Samaritan’s Feet’s annual Champions of Hope Weekend—a significant vision-casting and fundraising event held in the spring, rotating between locations on the east and west coasts of the U.S.

Premier provides the leadership and execution for all aspects of the event including:

• Strategic planning
• Donor prospecting and communications
• Location selection and negotiation
• Branding and creative
• Website development
• Event format, content and timeline
• Securing speakers and performers
• Event production and scripting
• Hospitality
• Facility coordination
• Guest management system
• Revenue plan and budget management

Each Champions of Hope Weekend has helped raise significant funds for Samaritan’s Feet and increased its strategic partnerships. With resources raised from Champions of Hope Weekend events, Samaritan’s Feet has been able to open fully functional offices in countries across the globe including South Africa, the Philippines, Hong Kong, Canada, Brazil and more. The organization has also worked with partner organizations to develop a revolutionary new World Shoe, which includes an anti-microbial element that treats foot-borne illnesses and infections and also protects feet from contaminated soil.
