Our Guests will have an opportunity to bid on four Giving Trees this year in our live auction: Covenant House, Cartier House Care Home, SAINTS Rescue, and Tri-City Transitions House. The gifts under the tree and the décor will be donated to the specific charity and the proceeds from the auction will benefit Crossroads, while the lucky bidder will receive a tax receipt in the amount of the winning bid for their generosity.

Pet Rescue Giving Tree
Pets-Matter Foster Care Society was started by a group of caring individuals who recognized the significance of pets in a family and the pain and loss experienced when no options exist for care in times of crisis. When families are disrupted, even temporarily, pets are frequently lost, surrendered to an animal care agency and face an unknown future. It is our aim to provide a secure place for pets until the family is in a position to be reunited.
