Save the Date for 2018 Gala & Auction!

The auction and gala begins at 6:00 PM with a Silent Auction, wine raffle, hors d'oeuvres and entertainment, followed by a formal dinner and Live Auction. One-hundred percent of proceeds go to our mission to build homes, community, and home for local families and Veterans.
Our online bidding is now live! We use the web based platform Bidding for Good so our supporters have a chance to bid on our silent auction items before our Gala & Auction! All of the items will then go to the Auction & Gala on October 20th. If you can't attend our Gala & Auction this is also a chance for you to bid on our auction items!
How to Start Bidding!

And finally, start bidding on our fabulous silent auction items!
How it Works:
Bid on the silent auction gifts online until October 17th at 9:00 AM, after which the online auction will close. The items will then be displayed at the auction, and bidding will continue that evening. In a nutshell - preview and bid on the silent auction items online, and if you are attending the Gala, continue bidding that evening. Even if you can't attend the Gala, you are eligible to bid online - and possibly win! We will notify you if you are the winner of an item following the event on October 20th.
