The Baltimore Station, an organization that supports individuals dealing with homelessness and substance use disorder by providing residential and community based therapy programs, celebrated the 27th anniversary of its annual Homerun for Recovery fundraiser by raising more than $172,000 April 25 at Power Plant Live in Baltimore.

More than 400 people attended and helped The Baltimore Station raise the most money in the history of the event . It was presented by Columbia-based cybersecurity firm Fortego and sponsored by M&T Bank, Len the Plumber, Maryland Multi-Housing Association and Praxis Engineering, among many other local businesses and individuals.

Homerun for Recovery’s fundraising effort is driven by its signature live and silent auctions. Winning bidders went home with packages including vacations to Paris, Mexico and Las Vegas, fishing excursion aboard the Salty Dawg and luxury box accommodations and game-day privileges at Oriole Park Camden Yards, among others. Silent auction packages included brewery and wine tours, concert tickets, gift certificates from many of the city’s finest restaurants and hotels, and collectors’ items such as autographed sports memorabilia.

Menu highlights for the event included Pizza di Joey’s brick oven pizza, fresh oysters, a gourmet BBQ buffet from Power Plant Live and wings and award-winning bread pudding from The Baltimore Station’s own chef Russell Jackson. Delicato Family Vineyards provided the wine and the band Midnite Run performed live.
