About The Sustain Auction: A First Friday Reception and Holiday Fundraiser

The Homeless Garden Project announces its Sustain Auction: a First Friday Holiday Reception and Fundraiser in support of HGP's proven transitional employment program. The in-person even will be held Friday, December 3 from 6-8 pm at the Resource Center for Nonviolence, 612 Ocean Street in Santa Cruz.

Featuring wine and delicious bites from the Soif Restaurant, each entry ticket will feature a stocking stuffer gift bag of organic products, along with a live auction and an entertaining program featuring local luminaries including City of Santa Cruz Mayor, Donna Meyers and incoming City of Santa Cruz Mayor, Sonja Brunner (invited). Executive Director, Darrie Ganzhorn, says the event "puts a unique spin on HGP's traditional First Friday holiday fundraiser. Sustain invites us to gather safely in person and celebrate the success of our trainees, as we raise funds to grow our program and operation at a critical time."

HGP's 2021 live auction features fantastic experiential offerings, including a weeklong stay in Galway, Ireland, a sail on the SF Bay, a private flight to Napa's wine country, a stay at Yosemite, and more. Event tickets are $100 per person. Covid protocols require proof of vaccination and ID, or a negative PCR test within 48 hours, and indoor masking.
