Ball Homes Night of Hope

Since 2009, the Ball Homes Night of Hope has been the premier event of the year for the Hope Center. This year, we welcomed Randy and Lydia Grimes as our featured speakers. Randy Grimes is a Baylor University graduate and an award-winning 10-year veteran of the NFL who crawled on his hands and knees into treatment for an opioid addiction that developed while treating career-related injuries. He is the founder of Professional Athletes in Recovery and recently released his first book in January 2022, titled Off Centerx. Randy’s wife, Lydia, is a Certified Family Addiction Coach. Today Randy and Lydia stage drug and alcohol interventions for professional athletes, celebrities, business leaders, and everyday Americans to find recovery from addiction. People in recovery commonly recite their “rock-bottom” story; the moment in their addiction that they hit their lowest point ever and realized they had to turn their life around or die. Randy and Lydia share their rock-bottom story with gut-wrenching honesty, humility, humor, and HOPE. Thank you for joining us at the 14th Annual Ball Homes Night of Hope! We can’t wait to see everyone in 2023!


Alumni Days

Alumni Day is a special event to celebrate the countless lives saved because of Hope Center recovery programs. The events are filled with camaraderie between our staff, current clients, alumni, and the Lexington community. We typically expect 600-800 people in attendance at this event. There is great food, games, music, and most importantly a chance to see what recovery is all about by hearing stories of Hope Center’s own past and present clients. We promise you will  want to “Keep Comin’ Back!” Thanks for joining us at Alumni Days in 2022! Stay on the lookout for information regarding 2023 Alumni Days dates.
