And, we are again challenged to find the words to adequately express our gratitude!!

Give to the Max

 

Incredible!! We raised $38,395 on Give to the Max Day!! The very generous $10,000 match offered by BTD Manufacturing and an anonymous last minute $10,000 match meant that gifts would be tripled! Thanks to all who participated!

I’ll Tile & Stone out did themselves this year by sponsoring an incredibly enjoyable event and doubling the proceeds from this year’s Festival of Trees compared to the inaugural event last year. From the fantastical Christmas trees to the charming auction items and door prizes, to the delicious food from Brygge Taps & Tastes, and the delightful entertainment. The evening produced over $21,000 to support our programs and mission. Thank you!  Festival of Trees

Candles and Carols hosted by Trinity Lutheran in December delivered a warm and meaningful evening full of music and the message of the light and hope of Christmas. It was topped off with a delicious traditional turkey dinner. We are so fortunate to have been the beneficiary of this standing room only event with proceeds of $1,400 received. A special “shout out” to our board member, Mark Berg, for leading the charge on this event.

The residents of Detroit Lakes and the surrounding communities continue to be generous and supportive, and for that we are genuinely grateful. Donations and sponsorships for Thanksgiving and Christmas are too many to list individually. Thank you for making a difference!!
