If the holiday season is inspiring you to throw a party with a bigger purpose, you might want to consider Hope at Home. The philosophy is simple: invite a group of family and friends for a fun night of wine tasting, have Hope at Home specialists bring and pour the wine, and 15 percent of half- and full-case sales from your party will be donated to the cause of your choice! Wedding and lifestyle publicist Leila Lewis decided to do just that. With serious hostess skills and an eye for stylish details, she was able to provide over 700 meals for kids in need by donating her 15 percent to Share Our Strength's No Kid Hungry campaign! Pretty impressive, right? See the thoughtfully chic touches from her Hope at Home party that are inspiring us to throw our own event!
