February 18, 2017 – Night Without A Tux Gala

Safe Harbour's ninth annual "Night Without A Tux" fundraising gala will take place on Saturday, February 18, 2017, at the Carlisle Country Club.

The gala will recognize and celebrate Safe Harbour's  role and service to thecommunity.  Safe Harbour was officially incorporated in February 1986 and opened its doors to the homeless and nearly homeless later that year at the James Wilson Facility in downtown Carlisle.  For three decades, the non-profit organization has worked diligently to fulfill its mission of providing housing and supportive services for homeless and nearly homelessindividuals and families by increasing their basic life skills.


"Night Without A Tux" raises funds to support Safe Harbour's mission of providing housing and supportive services for homeless and nearly homeless individuals and families to help them achieve independent living by increasing their basic life skills. The event also features dinner, music and dancing with Jazz Me, and a Silent Auction. 


Safe Harbour provides a continuum of housing services for homeless and nearly homeless individuals and families.  Safe Harbour's services include operating an emergency shelter for families and single females who are in desperate need of a secure place to live and an environment to begin getting their lives under control; bridge housing that helps individuals and families in need of longer-term assistance to continue acquiring the skills necessary for independent living and a productive life style; and single-room-occupancy (SRO) permanent housing facilities that offer housing opportunities to single individuals who are ready for independent living, but need additional "life support."
