SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. — Transitions-Mental Health Association hosted its Trunks of Treasure fundraising event Sunday at SLO Brew the Rock.

Attendees received a key and tried to open eleven locked trunks to see if they won a prize.

Awards ranged from gift certificates, wine and more.

All the trunks were based on themes like "Escape to the Wine Country" and "Coastal Weekend."

The executive director of Transitions-Mental Health Association, Jill Bolster-White, says all the proceeds from fundraisers like Trunks of Treasure go directly to mental health services in the community.

"They directly pay to help people get their first job at growing grounds farm, they may help to support our hotline which is a 24-hour, seven days a week crisis hotline. It may help to fund a homeless person to have a hotel stay on their way back to mental health treatment and ideally into housing," said Bolster-White.

Transitions-Mental Health Association provides many outreach services for adolescents, adults and seniors in San Luis Obispo and Northern Santa Barbara Counties.
