This year’s Toast to Hope fell just days before the Thanksgiving holiday, and the timing could not have been more perfect. We are so thankful for the hundreds of people involved with this event, from planning committee members and volunteers to sponsors and guests. They all helped us raise $65,000 to support SCAN’s child abuse prevention programs in the coming year.
This gratitude feels so good, we want you to get in on it! We still have a few items available through our Silent Auction — including very meaningful “Bidding for Good” items that directly support our programs as well as gorgeous works by local artists.
Browse the items below, then download this Second Chance Auction Items and get us your bids by December 5, 2012!
