Take a stand against family violence and abuse and host an event on behalf of the Tri-City Transitions Society or Tri-City Transitions Women’s Emergency Shelter. Your event will help raise awareness, and provide financial support for our organization. Events held by individuals and community partners allow us to provide much needed programs and services to support local families.

Independent special events or third-party fundraisers are a very important component of our fundraising activities. Every event held in support of Tri-City Transitions Society gets us one step closer to achieving our mission to strengthen family and community by breaking the cycles of family violence and abuse. Third Party event options can include:

  • Golf Tournaments (i.e. Charity of Choice for proceeds, selling mulligans and putting contests)
  • Stampede Parties
  • Corporate or individual events & parties
  • Challenge Events (i.e. walks, runs, scavenger hunts, fitness/sport challenges/adventure hunts)
  • Auctions or Share of Ticket Sales – online or live auctions
  • Or your own creative and unique fundraising idea

Your event is your opportunity to participate in charitable and community work that is fun and meaningful, while sending an inspirational message to the community.

We encourage new events big and small. We are always interested in new partnerships and look forward to supporting your fundraising or awareness-building event however we can.
