You Can Change the Life of a Child Today

Help-a-Kid No-Ball 

Instead of using your donation to throw a big party, we are selling tickets to an event you don’t have to attend! All Help-a-Kid No-Ball proceeds go directly to helping children living in Transition House’s emergency shelter.

No-Ball Ticket $150

Why buy a ticket to an event that won’t take place?

  • Your giving goes to helping children—not putting on a party.
