Sale of items from home of Bob and Dolores Hope this weekend to benefit local charity
There was no one like Bob Hope.
I watched all of his TV specials and many of his movies and loved every minute of them – especially Boy Did I Get the Wrong Number which somehow became a Hernandez family favorite.
One of the best parts of his specials was when Bob’s lovely wife Dolores would come on and sing a song.
So I’m happy to spread the word that Linda Hope, the daughter of Bob and Dolores, has announced a sale of items from her parents’ Toluca Lake home that will take place on Saturday, May 4 and Sunday, May 5 at St. Charles Borromeo Church in North Hollywood. This was her mother’s parish for 70 years.
Proceeds of the sale will benefit St. Charles Holy Family Service Center, a charity championed and supported by Dolores Hope. It provides food, clothing and other essential items to the San Fernando Valley’s neediest people.
Among the items for sale will be antiques, paintings and pictures, ceramics, furniture, religious items, Bob Hope memorabilia, lamps, holiday items, household items, books, luggage, dinnerware, glassware, china, decorative pillows, cut glass items, and knick knacks.
Says Linda Hope: “My mother and dad would be happy to know that many of the items that gave them pleasure during their lifetimes will find new homes with their neighbors, friends and fans and knowing that this sale will benefit those in need here in their own community would have given them great satisfaction.”
The church is located at the corner of Lankershim Blvd. and Moorpark in North Hollywood, 10834 Moorpark St., North Hollywood, CA 91602. Hours of the sale are 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Cash only. Parking available in St. Charles parking lots.
