HOI, the Tucker-based mission program that operates schools, clinics and volunteer work groups in Honduran and Nicaraguan villages, has announced it will host the inaugural Honduras Comes to Atlanta event.
The seated dinner will be held Nov. 7 at the Marriott Courtyard in Decatur, beginning at 6:30 p.m., and proceeds will benefit HOI’s ministries in Honduras and Nicaragua.
The roast-themed event will honor Matt Moore, a longtime supporter of HOI’s ministries in Honduras. After a successful business career, Moore dedicated his life to helping people in Latin America. He has made more than 50 trips to Honduras and Costa Rica spearheading community development and construction projects.
“Matt Moore has dedicated his life to helping the people of Honduras and Costa Rica improve their quality of life,” said HOI CEO Jerry Eickhoff. “Even as he got well past his retirement years, he continued to make the difficult trips into the remote regions of these countries to help improve living conditions, health standards and educational opportunities. He is respected and admired by all who worked alongside him, both North and Central Americans.”
“I’m honored that HOI is recognizing my love for the people of Honduras,” Moore said. “This event is not about me, it’s about the people we’ve worked with for so long in Central America... I’m proud of the impact we’ve been able to make.”
of the event will have a seated dinner and can bid on items in a silent auction, including a weeklong condo stay in Maui and an autographed Tim Tebow New
England Patriots football.
