Turning Point to host annual auction

WOODSTOCK – Turning Point, McHenry County’s only comprehensive domestic violence agency and shelter, will hold its annual fundraising auction April 26 at Jameson’s Charhouse Huntley, 12860 Del Webb Blvd.

The auction is Turning Point’s longest-running fundraiser, having been held annually since the agency’s founding in 1981. 

The evening kicks off at 6:30 p.m. with a cash bar, hors d’oeuvres and silent auctions, continues with dinner and ends with the always exciting live auction, with attendees bidding on donated items.

This year’s auction items include a weekend getaway, a necklace from Dalzell Jewelers, a limited edition Matt Pfahlert Wilco poster autographed by the band and a handmade quilt.

Some popular items from years past will be offered again, including a wine collection with more than two-dozen bottles, a golf package that includes foursomes at several area golf courses and what organizers are calling “An abundance of Chocolate” – a wheelbarrow loaded with more than 40 pounds of chocolate. 

Turning Point offers emergency shelter, crisis services and group and individual counseling as well as a Partner Abuse Intervention Program and legal advocacy. 

Tickets cost $75 and can be reserved by calling Turning Point at 815-338-8081.

In addition, donations still are being sought for auction items. Items may be donated by calling that same number.

Information also is available at www.mchenrycountyturningpoint.org.
