Samaritan House is grateful for the sponsors who help to make this fundraiser a success: Susan Painter, Advantage Realty, Oregon Coast Bank and Western Title.
This year’s theme supports what Samaritan House does for Homeless Families with Children: “A Sheltering Nest”. The talented team of volunteers is using their creativity to make some foods that show off the theme like: mushroom and chocolate nests. You can expect to have a bottomless cup of Earl grey tea with caffeinated and decaf available. The chocolate spice scones, sorbets, sandwiches, savories and desserts will make up the total tea experience.
In addition, a raffle drawing for a quilt (see picture) Made by Teecia Cornelius and quilted by Lisa Taylor will only cost $1.00 per ticket for a chance to win. A silent auction will feature over 25 items, small and large, for any budget. Jessie Treon will fill the air with her Piano selections.
You will learn about the work of Samaritan House from it’s executive director, Lola Jones. She will be showing a testimonial video of a graduate. Space is limited so get your tickets early.

The way it works is they give them a wishlist with three wishes that a client has made and the community member who is adoptinig them can choose from that list what they would like to get them! Grace Wins Haven will also be needing donations for a full Christmas dinner and with all of the yummy festive desserts! Grace Wins Haven is getting the word out because they have about a hundred homeless people on a wishlist still to fill and only a couple of weeks to get it done!!
