Thank you for supporting the Havens Center!

We wanted to thank you for helping put together, attending, donating, and bidding on our auction items at the 2011 Havens Center Auction!

The Havens Center provides a great place for groups and individuals throughout our community to gather, socialize, and share ideas.  The auction provides over 20% of the Havens Center budget each year.
