Transformed Treasures


For the last seven years, lucky bidders have taken home stunning artwork, one-of-a-kind jewelry, clothing, furniture and other unique items made from re-purposed items from Salvation Army thrift shops. Last year, 81 Alaska artists created more than 130 items that were auctioned off in live and silent auctions at the Transformed Treasures luncheon. Proceeds benefit nine local Salvation Army programs including educational curriculum, recreational equipment, camp scholarships and facility improvements.

Thank you to the hundreds of people who attended the 2014 Transformed Treasure event in May 2014! It was wildly successful--raising over $35,000 to support our programs. Special thank you also goes to our sponsors, BP Alaska, Color Art Printing Co. and Udelhoven Oilfield System Services.

Sharing the story of transformed lives through transformed art items is the focus of this fun, fabulous lunch and auction to benefit Anchorage area Salvation Army ministries.

Local artists and crafters browse through donated items in Anchorage area Salvation Army Family Stores to find unique items, which they transform into one-of-a-kind collectables.  Some items receive a fresh coat of paint and some embellishments, while others are completely transformed into new items, with new purpose. 

Amazing artists, a dedicated planning committee and support from the community make this annual event fun, and an important fundraiser.
