Fall Harvest Wrap

Nov 4, 2019

Our Fall Harvest fundraiser was held at Ginger*s on October 26th. About 70 people attended, and we raised just over $28,000.

Thanks to everyone who donated items for auction. All items were purchased by bidders! Plus, our experiment with a new online auction platform was a success. Many folks bid online prior to, and during the event, even though they could not attend in person.

Thanks, also, to the performers — who donated their tips to SF Night Ministry — and to all the SFNM volunteers, event staff from Community Housing Partnership, and Ginger*s staff. Special thanks to our event committee: board member James Elerick, hostess Olivia Hart, community members Pam Dannenberg and Megan Rogers, and Executive Director, Trent Thornley. Very special thanks to Olivia Hart for hosting the event and auction!

Please enjoy these photos and videos from the event.

And look for more festive and fun-raising events in 2020!

Thank you Supporters

Because of the generosity of these organizations and people, we were able to keep the event expenses bat 13.5% of the funds received. That means 86.5% of the funds raised went directly to the SF Night Ministry!


Thank you Auction Donors

We had a fabulous selection of items for our auciton, which was held online and at the event by mobile phone. Every item was purchased by a bidder!
