About Our Auction
On Saturday, April 23, 2016, Dignity Housing is hosting a celebration to honor one of Philadelphia’s most important advocates for those living in poverty and homelessness, former Executive Director Beverly Roberts-Cruse. Beverly will be honored for her work toward alleviating poverty and homelessness through social program planning, public policy analysis, and advocacy. The Gala will formally introduce Dignity Housing’s new executive director, John Ungar, to friends, supporters and donors. It will also act as a fundraiser for Dignity Housing’s programs.
As a significant source of the evening’s proceeds will come from a silent auction, we've launched this Pre-Gala Auction website which allows you to bid on or buy items right now, or simply browse before the Gala. Some of our items include, Eagles tickets in a Premium Box provided by Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenny and lunch with three former Mayors. Your contribution will help Dignity to defray some of the costs of hosting this event, allowing us to devote even more contributions to our ongoing work with homeless families and individuals.
