2012 Annual Celebration Reception and Auction

On October 4, we gathered with 250 friends of BHA to “Celebrate the Harvest” of the 20/20 Vision Campaign. We’re two years into the campaign and housing is being expanded, new programs are starting, renovation efforts are beautifying our block and our investment in Allison Hill and homeless families is stronger than ever.

The evening was a mixture of fun and meaning as over $32,000 was raised from sponsors, the live and silent auctions, and donations. We were inspired by the words of program graduate Lakeyshia Crummel, Episcopal Bishop Nathan Baxter, and current participant Ana Phillips.

A new addition to our annual celebration this year was a live auction with auctioneer Wayne Scott as well as the expansion of our silent auction. Special thanks to our Presenting Sponsor, Susquehanna Bank, as well as all of our other supporters, volunteers and sponsors who made this special evening possible. We couldn’t do what we do without your on-going encouragement and support!
