Tickets for the event are $60 per person or $600 for a table of 10.  Tickets can be purchased online at nnhouse.org or contact Brianne with the Northside Neighborhood House at 267-2217.

Attendees are encouraged to bring their competitive spirits and be ready to bid on items offered at the live interactive auction.  Bids on all items are $10 and under. There will also be a silent auction and a chance to bid on several vacation packages. The event has sold out for the past six years so people are encouraged to purchase tickets soon.

“This has been an incredibly busy year for the NNH—with the organization celebrating its 90th birthday and serving more neighbors in need than ever before,” says Ms. Carswell. “With the increasing number of people served, we have developed new collaborations with many local organizations and continue to be committed to providing a hand up to our neighbors. We couldn’t do this without the generous support of our community.”
