30th Annual Banquet & Auction 2020 cancelled

Thu, 04/02/2020 - 17:52 -- Anna

We are saddened to announce that the 30th Annual Banquet & Auction scheduled for April 18th is cancelled for this year. 

This is very hard for us to do, not only because it allows us to continue and expand our programming and services; but more so, we love to spend the evening with the many caring supporters in attendance. For thirty years, we have truly enjoyed celebrating the many successes of LCRC, made possible by you! 

We are resolute to continue opportunities for celebration in 2020, i.e. Open Houses and Festival of Trees, and will have a super Thirtieth PLUS One celebration Spring 2021! 

Last year the event brought over $60,000! The rest of the calendar year does not lend itself to rescheduling given other conflicting community and seasonal events. In lieu of the annual banquet, we will be HOLDING A RAFFLE in the hopes of recovering some, if not most, of the proceeds from the banquet. We are in the early stages of planning the details of the RAFFLE. With permission from the donors, items or financial contributions originally intended for the banquet, are being considered for inclusion in the RAFFLE. 

We, the staff and clients at Lakes Crisis & Resource Center, want to express our deepest appreciation for your unending and generous support of what we do to help those dealing with trauma and violence in their lives. These are trying times. We are not only continuing to provide safety, hope, and healing for men, women, and children; but now, more than ever, providing any semblance of stability, empathy, and support is crucial for many.

Again, we are grateful for your understanding and support.
