After a fantastic event in 2016, The Finley Project is excited and anticipating great things for this year’s event! Will you join us?
Out of the ashes we rise, we see Hope Rising. When all seems gone, when there is nothing left to live for, choosing the way to live life after a tragedy becomes a continual choice. When the only desire is heaven and being with the one we love, hope has to rise up. There has to be more to life than what was lost. Hope must come forth in order for progress. Without hope, there is no vision, no forward projection.
From the destruction, beauty must come out and up.
What becomes your hope when the greatest desire in your life leaves you?
When your world crumbles around you?
When your loved one dies?
When your business goes bankrupt?
When you husband walks out?
How do you survive the unimaginable?
How do you cope?
What is your hope?
How do you see Hope Rising?
The Finley Project becomes the hope for mothers when their hope feels lost. It’s the little things in loss that matter. The phone calls to console and listen, the massages to offer comfort, the cleanings for peace of mind, the counseling to feel heard and helped. At The Finley Project, we offer hope through faith, love and compassion. We want mothers to see Hope Rising from their tragedy.
The “4th Annual Celebration of Life Gala: Hope Rising” will be a night you will never forget, filled with reflection, celebration and fun. We will have an incredible silent auction, a culinary creation crafted by The Alfond Inn’s incredible chef, a program honoring the Projects’ mothers as well as music and dancing! As an organization, The Finley Project wants the Gala to be like no other Gala. We are dedicated to making it a night that pays homage to little lives that matter greatly. We will also celebrate the blessings we do still have here on earth.

When Noelle Moore had Finley’s “Celebration of Life” event back in 2013, she committed to having one every year for her sweet, blonde hair, blue eyed daughter. She had a night of reflecting, eating, sharing and bringing individuals together to celebrate the life of Finley Elizabeth. When Noelle started The Finley Project, it hit her one day that she wanted to include the other babies into the “Celebration of Life” event she was going to have each year and not just Finley.
This is how the Gala was founded. Noelle Moore committed to always honoring and bringing recognition to the lives of the infants that lived here on earth. Their lives made lasting impacts and changed their mother’s hearts forever so why shouldn’t we honor them and be thankful for them along with sweet Finley.
