Transitions 30th Annual Auction
Jun 1 @ 5:30 pm – 8:30 pm

The Transitions 30th Annual Auction, Infinite Possibilities, will be held on Thursday, June 1st from 5:30-8:30pm at Susquehanna University’s Evert Dining Room. The 2017 Auction features an extensive live and silent auction, dessert dash, live music and heavy hors d’oeuvres. Live and silent auction items include sailing trips, a hunting excursion, a variety of unique dinner and cocktail parties, a tropical paradise escape, Florida beach vacation, weekend getaways, as well as hand-crafted jewelry.

The keynote speaker is Dr. Christine Dotterer, who will share her personal experience with perseverance in the face of domestic violence. Dr. Dotterer is well known in the region as an active and knowledgeable family medical practitioner, and will share her powerful story during the auction program. The 2017 recipient of the Pete Macky Advocacy Award also will be announced during the Transitions Auction.

Pete Macky was the first recipient of this Advocacy Award, having spent 42 years advocating for victims of domestic violence with North Penn Legal Services.  Pete passed away unexpectedly  shortly after having retired and he is sorely missed.  He will be remembered warmly as Transitions gives this award in his name.

All proceeds from the auction will support Transitions’ mission of creating “Safer Families and Safer Communities.” The 2017 Transitions Annual Auction will directly support violence prevention education throughout Union, Snyder, and Northumberland counties, as well as trauma counseling to local victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. Transtions also plans to develop a Family Justice Center, which will support family members during child custody exchanges and court-ordered visitations. The largest expense that Transitions has that cannot be supported by grants is the ownership of two Safe Houses in Lewisburg and the Shamokin. They provide emergency housing for individuals who need safety from violence they are experiencing at home.

Auction sponsors include Weis Markets, Geisinger, Evangelical Community Hospital, M&T Bank, WoodMode Fine Custom Cabinetry, Albright Footcare Center, Orchard Pump and Supply, BB&T, Rippon Enterprises, Swineford National Bank and Mifflinburg Bank & Trust. In-Kind Sponsors are The Daily Item, Sunbury Broadcasting, Pro-Musicians, Computition, The UPS Store, Albright Care Services, Details Matter and Hess Auctioneering.

Tickets to the 2017 Transitions Auction, Infinite Possibilities, can be purchased online at www.transitionsofpa.org or at the door until the night of the auction, June 1st. Tickets are limited.
