This year our annual event is going virtual! Although it's clear we won't be able to have an in-person gala event this year, we are committed to finding a safe and appropriate way to honor our work together. And so, on that note, we hope you’ll save time on the evening of November 14, 2020 to join us.  

Throughout this crisis our doors have remained open. As we continue to work with people who depend on us for shelter and housing, one thing has become abundantly clear: Having a home matters. Now more than ever, your support is crucial as we continue working toward our shared goal of ending homelessness in our community.

virtual dinners & salons

Due to limitations from COVID-19, there is a new opportunity to show your support through virtual fundraising dinners and educational salon events! 


Hosting a virtual event is fun and easy, and our team is here to support you each step of the way. With a virtual event, the sky - or the screen - is the limit! Themes can range from a virtual wine tasting to a tea party, pizza making class, arts & crafts, or an old fashioned get together.


Invite anyone you think might be interested in supporting our cause, set a donation price (or ask them to come to learn), and a Friendship Shelter staff or board member will host a Zoom call and provide information about the organization.
