Theatre Event & Silent AuctionWe’ve partnered once again with Theatre Harrisburg for our first event of 2015! With a special performance of I do! I do! and a silent auction scheduled for February 15th, this event is the perfect way to celebrate Valentine’s Day. Silent auction items include sports and entertainment tickets and memorabilia, retail and restaurant gift cards, as well as a variety of donations from local businesses. Set solely in a bedroom dominated by a large four-poster bed, this charming musical spans fifty years, from 1895 to 1945, as it focuses on the ups and downs experienced by Agnes and Michael Snow throughout their marriage. Written by the same team who created THE FANTASTICKS, the original 1967 Tony Award-winning Broadway production starred Mary Martin and Robert Preston. Location: The Krevsky Center in uptown Harrisburg. Time: Silent auction bidding begins at 6:30pm and showtime is at 7:30pm. Admission: $35.00 and includes refreshments. For tickets, email Chuck at email@example.com or call 717-975-2508.

I’m staying here because my kids are busy having so much fun with the volunteers that they don’t even know they’re homeless. —
Who Are Our Neighbors Without Homes?
- Folks just like us — mothers, fathers, children.
- An under-insured family loses everything in a fire. Their only option is to move into a hotel, but they can’t afford it forever.
- A working mom loses employment because of health restrictions. Now, she and her two kids get behind on rent and are running out of money quickly.
Why Family Promise?
- Families are the fastest growing segment of the homeless population nationwide.
- 20% of America’s kids live in poverty.
- 75% of our families get back on track to their own homes within 90 days.
