As many of you know, Transitions scheduled its Annual Auction for May 28 at Susquehanna University. Our theme was “Plant a Seed” and the next line that comes to my mind is “…and watch it grow.” That captures so well what we do at Transitions, whether it is supporting a victim who is deciding how to leave their abusive spouse; teaching students in our schools how to have healthy relationships; or providing therapy to someone who was abused as a child and is struggling to get on a positive path. These are just a few examples of our work in the valley and we are busier than ever these days! We are working remotely, but available in all corners of Union, Snyder, and Northumberland Counties.
The Auction is our largest fundraiser yielding about $80,000 of critical funding for the organization last year. We understand so well that these are difficult times for everyone, particularly our clients and small businesses. We simply cannot ask the community to support the event this year and have decided to cancel it.
Our Auction will be back next year, on May 27, 2021, bigger and better than ever! We look forward to having you as part of the event, which marks the beginning of summer each year.
We wish you the very best and hope that you stay well and safe.
Susan Mathias, CEO
