Transitions Homeless Center
When you sponsor or make a donation of an item or experience for our live or silent auction, you are helping the homeless throughout the Midlands of South Carolina get the assistance they need to move forward...because The Journey Home Begins Here ™
Reconstructing Home is our largest event of the year, and, thanks to our sponsors, in 2019 we set new records for fundraising success. We are proud of the fact that Reconstructing Home 2019 raised over $93,000 to help support the programs and services provided at Transitions. What does that mean? In 2019, this highly successful and unique event raised enough to fund all 260 beds at Transitions for more than 15 days (and nights). Or, to look at it another way, we raised enough to fully fund almost 11 beds for an entire year.
This year, because of the pandemic, Reconstructing Home is going virtual!
To help fill the need for holiday gifts, we will be featuring additional pieces of client made art, including notecards and things like decorated oyster shells that will make great gifts and stocking stuffers. The auction will also feature golf outings and other experiences that bidders can secure and enjoy when they are comfortable doing so.
There will be a private party for event sponsors on October 22, featuring a small live auction. Even if you are not attending this party, you can bid on these live auction items by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org on or before October 21. Items include a New Year's mountain cabin escape, dinner for 12 with Vinnie Livoti and Lawrence Wright, and a weeklong Hilton Head Island golf getaway!
