BEDFORD – Becky’s Place is hosting its annual Shelterbration on Saturday, April 9th at the St. Vincent de Paul School Shamrock Center, starting at 6:30 p.m.
The event will feature resident success stories, an auction, a 50/50 raffle, and the Becky’s Place awards. There will also be a special performance by My Yellow Rickshaw and catering services by Carla’s Catering.
Tickets for the event can be purchased online at beckysplacebedford.org for $50, with all proceeds going to providing the necessary services for the women and children being served by Becky’s Place. Cheri Bush Catholic Charities Director of Mission Advancement shared that this money goes to help in many different ways.
“This money goes right back into the organization to offer all of the necessary services for these women and children. Some of them are dealing with addiction issues or trying to escape from a domestic issue, and we provide them with a place to live while they get back on their feet by taking care of each other and supporting one another through their trials.”
Bush said that the support that is received by Becky’s Place from the Bedford community is continuous. The best way to respond to their efforts is to honor them back by awarding them for their volunteerism.
“Bedford is a truly giving community, and we use this event to honor individuals who have gone above and beyond to help serve these women. From providing clothing and shoes to utility payment assistance, or have provided work for these women to earn money to save up and move out,” said Bush. “The people who come in and repaint the rooms or help to fix the wear and tear of some items and the churches who provide their volunteers have been honored in the past. These awards go out to them for their continued support.”
Although the programs have already been sent in for print, there are still sponsorship opportunities for the event. To be a sponsor for the event, to donate auction items, or for more information on how you can help, contact Cheri Bush at email@example.com.
