21st Annual Party & Auction

Thursday, MAY 3rd at 6:00 p.m.

This year's Party & Auction proved to be a smashing success as we raised over $170,000 to support programs that directly serve Philadelphia's most vulnerable individuals experiencing homelessness. Funding Bethesda Project's life-saving work ensures the provision of emergency shelter, housing and supportive services for thousands of men and women experiencing homelessness across Philadelphia every year.

We are so grateful to the Philadelphia Phillies, who have been generously hosting this event for over 13 years now, and to Fox29 News Anchor Lucy Noland who shared such a passionate belief in our cause of being family with those who have none.

We can't wait to see you again next year!
