STAMFORD, CT – Pacific House, a leader in ending homelessness in Fairfield County, is proud to announce their largest fundraiser of the year, the Pacific House 20th Annual Celebration. On Thursday, October 21st the region’s most socially-minded residents and community leaders will gather together in-person and online to celebrate the work that Pacific House does to transform lives and make a difference in our area.

The event promises to be an unforgettable evening, including a festive ‘live from the red carpet’ experience, followed by a dynamic program. Pacific House will share their extraordinary efforts throughout the pandemic to quickly house homeless individuals and divert others from descending into homelessness.

A variety of exciting silent auction items will be available for bidding, and a live paddle raise will allow participants the opportunity to name the affordable supportive housing units the organization has developed as a leader in the field.

Funds raised will help those who have nowhere else to turn,” said Rafael Pagan, Jr., Executive Director of Pacific House.
