The Samaritan Inn in McKinney, Texas provides hope for the homeless. On the night of this fundraising event, 180 people, 70 which are children were residents of the Inn. This annual gala was a collection of generous and caring people of the McKinney community who supported their needing neighbors. The live auction and the Fund-a-Need auctions were inspired by a resident’s story of hardships that have blossomed to success because of the programs at the Samaritan Inn which have provided her independence again. The story inspired live auction with rapid bidding exchange and the Fund-a-Need rose to a new high level of generosity for the Samaritan Inn. It was a beautiful, record raising night for supporting a great organization in McKinney, Texas.
