2015 Dinner at the Dunes with Darryl Strawberry
June 12, 2015 – Pastor Darryl Strawberry traveled from Orlando, Florida to The Dunes Club in Narragansett, RI to support the ministry of House of Hope RI. Once famed for his tremendous athletic gifts and a public fight against the ravages of addiction, Darryl now spreads the fame of Jesus Christ all over the country as he shares the story of how God delivered him not only from addiction, but from death to life in Christ. Together with his wife Tracy, the Strawberries run two Christ-centered drug and alcohol treatment and recovery centers for young people caught in the throes of addiction. They’ve also written a book called “The Imperfect Marriage: Help for Those Who Think It’s Over.”

After the concert and Darryl’s testimony, McCoy Stadium presented a check to House of Hope Rhode Island from the sales of tickets for the Hope ’15 event, which included a baseball game that followed. The concert was emceed, organized, and promoted by Paris Fisher, a passionate supporter of House of Hope RI and a divinely gifted musician, artist, and performer with a great burden for this generation.
