You’re Invited to the Non-Event!

What is the Non-Event?

For over 20 years, Crisis Assistance Ministry has been encouraging donors and supporters to forgo the costs of attending a gala, stay home, and make a gift to make a difference. This all-virtual event runs from July 15 - August 31, 2021 and includes an online silent auction.

5 Reasons You Should Join the Non-Event:

  • This has been a difficult year for all of us but some families in Mecklenburg County need more help than others getting back on their feet.
  • By staying home, you can give hope and housing stability to those who are struggling to make ends meet.
  • You don't have to rent a tux, hire a babysitter, or eat rubber chicken at a fancy gala.
  • 100% of your gift goes directly to helping neighbors in need.
  • Make a difference by bidding on items in our virtual silent auction.

Silent Auction

Every week during the Non-Event, we will release new items in the silent auction. Bidding opens on Monday morning and closes at 9pm on the following Sunday. To see all the items that will be available throughout the Non-Event, click here.

Ashley Does Not Give Up Easily

By Rachel Blake | July 28, 2021

When Ashley and her five children arrived in Charlotte two years ago, she was determined to do everything possible to keep her family safe. When faced with the threat of homelessness, the community’s generosity and Ashley’s resilience kept her and her children stably housed. Help others in Ashley’s situation by making a gift today.
