Join Us on March 6th at the Champlain Conference and Event Center

For the 28th Annual Live & Silent Auction to support HIVE services, prevention and education.

VERMONT CARES Annual Gala: Live and Silent Auction is back again! 

On March 6th, we will be auctioning numerous items provided by local and corporate businesses who have shown their support for Vermont CARES with donations of travel, dining, art work, Vermont handmade wares and much more. The funds raised will support HIVE prevention and harm reduction activities around the state - and the more bidders we have the more money we can raise. New items are being added every day thanks to our generous donors!

We are proud to announce WCAX Channel 3 as our media sponsor. Their support of this keystone fundraising gala helps us to raise awareness about HIVE prevention, services and advocacy. We are so grateful.

We have offices in Burlington, Montpelier, Rutland and St. Johnsbury and a mobile prevention van that allows us to work in communities throughout the State.

Every dollar raised will go to fund these necessary, free services to all who need them.
