The 8th annual Nest Fest fundraiser will benefit Renesting Project, Inc., a 501(c)(3) non-profit, tax exempt, public charity.  This organization provides gently used furniture and household items to clients of registered social service agencies as they transition from homelessness, AT NO COST TO THEM.  Over 1,600 men, women, and children have been served since January of 2010.  Some of the agencies that have been helped include the Fuller Center, Volunteers of America Homeless Veterans Program, Bossier and Caddo Parish Schools, Hope Connection, Easter Seals, Overton Brooks Medical Center Homeless Veterans Program and many others in our communities.

Each year hundreds of people come to dine, dance, donate and support Renesting in their mission to help families and individuals transition from homelessness into hopefulness! Attendees from all walks of life and age groups come together for this casual evening of fun. The silent auction is extremely popular!   Items range from gift certificates to your favorite eatery, beautiful jewelry and furniture to vacation timeshares and everything in between.

Purchase a ticket, reserve a table or make plans for a VIP experience but come and join the fun.  This casual evening promises to be a good time for a great cause…helping others conquer homelessness!

CHAIRished Beginnings Design Competition

The pleasure of creating an area that is beautiful, functional, comfortable and safe is something many of us enjoy.  We understand how beautiful spaces make us feel.  We know that a space called home is important and it changes how we relate to the rest of the world.  Often we will reclaim a space, renew gently used items and renest or use them again.  In fact, some of you are quite practiced at it!!  Here is an opportunity to use your talents and some of those items.  Enter the 4th annual “CHAIRished Beginnings” Design Competition and you will help homeless families and individuals in their time of need!

We are inviting you to be a part of this exciting event, which includes a casual evening of dinner, dancing and silent auction.  Enter the competition, share your talents and show everyone what this community is made of …caring, talented people!
