Auction

Silent auctions are an integral component of our events and their success depends on the generosity received from donors like you, which allows Bridge House / Grace House to treat over 800 homeless, indigent, uninsured, and/or unemployed men and women each year regardless of one’s ability to pay.  In addition to the substantial funds raised, our special events help elevate the community’s awareness of our mission.

If you and/or your business would like to assist us with growing our events by participating with a donation to the silent auction, please click here to donate to an upcoming auction.
