If you’ve dreamed of vacationing in Taos, New Mexico, Crested Butte, Colo., or Destin, Flor., mark your calendars for a fabulous silent auction offering stays at three luxury vacation homes in those locations.
The No Place Like Home vacation home silent auction event will benefit Austin Street Center, a nonprofit that has provided emergency shelter, food, and clothing to the most vulnerable homeless men and women in Dallas for 30 years.
“By leveraging vacation properties owned by Austin Street Center supporters and friends, we will be able to provide a unique opportunity to both our donors and auction winners,” said Becca Leonard, development director at Austin Street Center. “Donors will generate much-needed funds for Austin Street at little to no cost to themselves, and attendees will have the chance to win a stay at one of many fabulous spots around the country—only their vacation will benefit the homeless here in Dallas.”
Linda and Frank Roby will serve as event co-chairs for No Place Like Home, an evening which will include hors d’oeuvres and live demonstrations by John Kleifgen, executive chef of Nick & Sam’s Park Cities.
The event will take place Thursday, February 25, from 6-9 p.m. at Bulthaup Showroom in the Dallas Design District, 1617 Hi Line Dr. #200. Tickets are $50 per couple, $250 per group of ten, and are available online at austinstreet.org/noplacelikehome. To confirm your attendance, please email Charlotte Baker.
Through crisis intervention, case-management, transitional housing, and work readiness programs, Austin Street Center exists to provide the support and life skills necessary to achieve independence free of charge to more than 2,700 individuals annually.
