VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

The Haven battered women's shelter in Valdosta is changing the location for it's live and silent auction Saturday night.

The auction will now be held at the Rainwater Conference Center on Norman Drive instead of at Mathis City Auditorium because of a last minute scheduling conflict there.

The shelter said they knew they had to find another location because the auction is such an important part of what they do.

"It's definitely a crucial event for us. We definitely depend on this event to help us throughout the year," explained Lauren Sandbach, volunteer coordinator for the Haven. "We just built our brand new sexual assault center, so this auction will go to help provide for that building."

The auction starts at 7 p.m. and runs until 9 p.m. Tickets can be purchased at the door for $15. Items up for auction include gift cards and even trips to St. Petersburg and St. George's Island.
