    Mercy Center Ministries Presents Chinese Auction and Fashion Show

    Mercy Center Ministries has been a Patchogue mainstay since 1983 when doors opened at their first shelter for homeless 16-21 year old teen girls on River Avenue.

    In 1987 and 1989 they opened two more shelters in Blue Point and Sayville respectively, for  teen girls with children.

    Mercy accepts homeless and runaway youth from the entire county, providing an important service assisting families in crisis.  The number one reason youth leave home is due to family conflict.  Mercy helps by providing shelter and comprehensive services on site at each of their shelters.  The goal is for youth to heal, and learn important life skills to work toward independence.   Education and employment are mandatory program components.  The first thing to suffer when youth become transient is academic standing.

    Mercy holds fundraising events throughout the year.   Our biggest fundraiser, our Chinese Auction and Fashion show will take place on May 3rd at 5:45, at West Lake Inn, Patchogue.  This year’s theme is “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”. Guests will be able to browse an auction with 70 baskets valued at $100 and up.  Local Fashions from main street shops will be featured on the runway, and a full dinner is included in the price of the $55 ticket.  Seating is pre-arranged.  Tickets can be purchased in advance by visiting www.mercycenterministries.org, or by calling 631-447-3978.  This is a perfect  girls night out or Mothers Day gift!
