The Annual Auction is BACK!

Our annual benefit dinner and auction is BACK for the first time in three years! We are thrilled to be back together in the ballroom with you all to celebrate our organization. This year's event is:

Saturday, May 21, 2022
5:30 pm
Old National Events Plaza upstairs ballroom

Theme: "Bark to the Future" 
(1980's) (Dig out your Aquanet!)

 The auction features a preview cocktail party, dinner, and both silent and live auctions. Higher-valued items, unique items, or packages with high interest will be featured in the live portion of this successful event. The VHS receives no funding from local government or national agencies, and therefore must depend on the generosity of the corporate community and the public to continue our much-needed services.
