'feeling good at 40' gala
|Thank you for celebrating with us! |
Over 340 family members, donors, employees, community partners, and volunteers came together May 11th at the Nicollet Island Pavilion to celebrate our 40th Anniversary.
Guests were greeted by James, pictured left, and Patsy and Tom who live at Dakota Communities' homes in Robbinsdale and South St. Paul.
Your generosity throughout the evening was truly inspiring. Together we raised an amazing $104,000 for our mission after expenses. Over $61,000 was contributed during our Fund the Need and more than $15,000 in the Live Auction.
Mike Polski, The Roberts Family, Tapemark & The Klas Family, Julie Jones and Jenni Zeis were honored with Dreammaker Awards. Nancy Polski, Mike's mother, said "The Gala was one of the best nights I have ever had. Mike was so proud and happy. We all enjoyed the evening so much."
Thank you to everyone who
helped make this an evening to remember. We are grateful for your
generosity and were honored to share this special night with you!
