Restoring Hope Virtual Event


This year, the Annual Banquet/Silent Auction will be replaced with a virtual livestream fundraiser and online auction. We hope you will join us!

As you know, homeless and struggling men, women and children find a place of hope and dignity at CCRM.  Often it starts with a warm bed, nutritious meals, clean clothing or free medical care. The current pandemic has made it particularly difficult for many individuals to make ends meet.  So, all gifts and auction purchases will help men, women (and their children) devastated by homelessness & addiction to find freedom and new life.  With your partnership, they are able to rebuild stable and independent lives.

How to Bid in the Auction...

  1. BROWSE – Using any web browser on your computer or cell phone, go to the link provided and you will be able to view the auction items.
    • The link will be available October 12 @ 7:45 PM for viewing ONLY
    • Bidding opens AFTER the “Restoring Hope” livestream on October 13 (about 7:45PM).
  2. BID – To place a bid, you will be asked to create a login using an email address and password. Verify your email and you’re ready to place your bids!
  3. WATCH – Once your bid is submitted, watch your email. You will get email updates when someone outbids you, so you don’t miss out on your favorite item!

For the savvy bidder, there is a “proxy” bid you may put in place that will identify the maximum you want to spend for an item, but will only show the minimum bid to all viewers. If another person bids on that item, your bid will automatically increase up to the maximum amount you indicated.
