This auction supports Compassion Is Universal, Shanti's annual major public fundraising event.
Let us tell you about it!
For almost 40 years, Shanti has served our community. The annual benefit recognizes these years of service and pays respect to our distinguished history and spirit of volunteerism. Shanti’s mission today is as relevant as ever: to enhance the quality of life, health and well-being of people living with life-threatening illnesses.
The money we raise from this auction will account for a significant portion of the event’s success.Each year a diverse team of community leaders comes together to present our annual anniversary celebration, and raise funds to support Shanti’s clients as we celebrate the essential meaning of the Shanti model: Compassion is Universal.
