GRACE House Events


Home is Where the Heart Is (Cancelled)

GRACE House Dinner Fundraiser
“Home Is Where the Heart Is”
Canceled for 2020

The GRACE House Board of Directors recently made a very difficult decision and has canceled their annual fundraiser, “Home Is Where the Heart Is” scheduled for December 3, 2020.

Board President Lorna Mix said, “we are so very disappointed to cancel our annual fundraiser. This is such a great event that is whole heartedly supported by our volunteers, community members and our local businesses. During this time of continued uncertainty, we want to do what we can, to promote the safety and the well-being of everyone involved.
GRACE House continues to serve many individuals & families during the pandemic in a safe and conscientious manner. While all of us are coping with difficult challenges, loss, fear….just imagine not having a home. We will do all we can to help those needing safe shelter. On behalf of the board, I extend our sincere gratitude for the continued support of Grace House in our community”.

Executive Ron Oleheiser said, “the decision was made in part out of respect for social distancing and safety of attendees, which was over 300 at our 2019 fundraiser. In addition to the support of attendees, many local businesses and organizations sponsor the event and provide items used in our live & silent auctions, door prizes and other gifts. Most of these businesses and organizations have been hit very hard by this pandemic”
