The Center is a home away from home for many including hundreds of volunteers from every walk of life and every age from 5 to 95, who have become active in their communities.This is our main fundraiser for the year, and there are several ways you can get involved.


Join us at the beautiful Leif Erickson hall, where every year in March more than 200 community leaders and business owners come together for the $pring For $eniors Auction. We are delighted you are going to be a part of this wonderful night. Our Annual Auction includes a live auction, three silent auctions, dinner, and more. There will be an amazing array of items to bid on. Please bid often and give generously, without your support, we wouldn't be here! Enjoy this evening of delicious food, beverages, games, and fun!
