Welcome to the 2021 Virtual Charity Ball - Hopeful Hearts, Stronger Together!


As we leave behind a very strange year, we look forward to 2021 as a year that will bring the hope of recovery, especially for the families that we serve.  We would normally be planning a very special event to gather in celebration of all the people who support CRS and our mission, but unfortunately we cannot. 


Instead, we are planning a very special Virtual Charity Ball on Saturday, January 30, 2021. We'll still have our silent auction with amazing items, our very popular "Party-on-the-Patio" raffle, and our exclusive Jewelry Raffle sponsored by Peter & Co. Jewelers!  Tune in to our live stream event at 8:00 PM on January 30th. We'll bring you up-to-date on CRS news, but most importantly, we'll pull the winning tickets for our raffle items!

The Silent Auction is now open!
