Transitions Homeless Center announces 9th annual Reconstructing Home art show and auction

September 30, 2020

Transitions Homeless Center’s signature fundraiser, Reconstructing Home, is going virtual! Beginning October 1, 2020, at 12:00 pm, over 100 items will be going up for auction, including a showcase of art done by Transitions’ clients. In addition to raising money to support the programs and services provided at Transitions Homeless Center, the art show also pays a commission to each Transitions resident or past resident whose art is auctioned as part of the event.

A preview of this year’s homeless client art can be seen on display at Columbia Metropolitan Airport during the month of October.

In addition to art available for purchase, the auction includes an impressive array of items, including a catered dinner for ten, a unique Backstage Experience at the Koger Center, beach vacation packages, and much more. All auction items may be bid on through October 22, 2020, at 9 p.m. However, if you see an item you cannot live without, all auction items come with a guaranteed “Buy Out” price.

In response to the pandemic, our annual gala has been replaced with a small party for sponsors of the event. On October 22, 2020, from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m., this private event will feature much of the greatness of our normal gala but on a smaller scale, including music from Prettier Than Matt and a live auction. Sponsors not in attendance will receive a basket of food and beverages to enjoy from the comfort of their home or office.

Southeastern Freight Lines is this year’s Presenting Sponsor, whose generosity enables 100% of the auction and other sponsor proceeds to go straight to helping house the Midlands’ homeless men and women.

Every dollar earned from our auction goes straight to helping homeless men and women of the Midlands… because at Transitions “The Journey Home Begins Here.”
