by volunteers!

SSPADS honors and thanks each and everyone of our volunteers as well.

If you weren’t on hand to bid on the silent and live auction items at our annual gala held on March 1st, well, then you aren’t going to Disney World or Cancun! But, some lucky winner is headed to Orlando and another attendee is headed to Vegas via Southwest Airlines, and several folks ended up with lovely spa packages from Marc Allen. In any case you have to come to win! We missed you this year but hope to see you next year! All proceeds from the gala will go to SSPADS programs and services for individuals and families experiencing homelessness. Stay tuned so you can join us next year where we promise to have more wonderful gifts and most of all FUN! Pictures coming soon!
