Home Sweet Home


Home Sweet Home raised more than ever with $150,000 net proceeds and counting!

Dear friends,

We cannot believe Home Sweet Home's success!  We had a wonderful experience the whole evening, and then for the dessert auction to break records with a $50,000 gift--it was just astonishing!  To our virtual attendee who made that generous surprise pledge, thank you so much.  Together, we all raised more than $150,000 (net proceeds) to sustain the mission.

Last night we came together to support families experiencing homelessness.  This coming year, thanks to all of you, we know Family Promise will have the resources to answer the phone and say, "Yes, we can help" dozens and dozens of more times.  We are very grateful for every single donation and contribution that made this the most successful Home Sweet Home in our history!

We especially want to thank the following:

  • Anna VanHulzen for sharing her and husband Adam's story,

  • Troy Washington, our emcee from WRTV,

  • Nate Smith (photographer) and Victor Neff (DJ) for their in-kind services,

  • LivestreamGuys for the virtual event and technology,

  • The Willows venue, staff, and hospitality,

  • WeDo Auctions' online platform and support.

Last, our many thanks to our fellow Home Sweet Home Committee members who made the whole night possible: Dolly Craft, Pat Eckert, Nancy Hardin, Judy Joutras, Claire Mauschbaugh, Jenny Melind, Kenda Resler Friend, Marcella Slabosky, and Laura Westerfield.  We can't imagine working with a better group of people!

Thank you again, and we hope to see you next year because every child deserves a (home sweet) home!

With gratitude,


Liz Chandler & Amy Oviedo
Co-Chairpersons, Home Sweet Home

Our deepest gratitude to the 2021 sponsors making this event possible...
