Santa Catalina Catholic Church is hosting the fourth annual Luncheon/Silent Auction to benefit the Sister Jose Women’s Center in Tucson. For many Tucson women experiencing homelessness, Sister Jose Women’s Center is their only safe haven and the first step to recovery from homelessness. Its low-barrier day center provides unaccompanied homeless women with a stable and safe environment to recuperate from the daily struggle of homelessness and extreme poverty. In the first six months of 2018 there were 11,343 visits. The Night Program provides overnight stays for women who would otherwise be sleeping outside. This new program has provided 1,562 overnights.
The event will be at El Conquistador Hilton, 10000 N Oracle Rd, on March 3, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. The event starts with a reception and auction followed by a luncheon at 12:30 p.m. Cost of tickets is $50 with all proceeds going to support homeless women at the Sister Jose Women’s Center. For tickets or further information, contact the center at 520-954-3373 or [email protected].
