Falling for Lucy's Hearth

Two hundred supporters really did "Fall for Lucy's Hearth" last week at a festive cocktail fundraiser at the International Tennis Hall of Fame, garnering $40,000 for the transitional shelter for homeless women and children.

Legendary auctioneer Mike Corcoran led the call for pledges, and Fine Catering by Russell Morin provided delicious small plates for all to enjoy.

Lucy's Hearth was rated the highest-performing shelter in the state last year, boasting the greatest percentage of families exiting to more permanent housing.

Over the past six years, the average stay at the shelter has dropped from two years to 3-6 months, which is attributed to a wide range of programming designed to promote self-sufficiency.

Lucy's Hearth's next big event will be the 13th annual Designer Wreath Sale at Easton's Beach Rotunda on Saturday, Dec. 7.
