Over 550 people attended the event, which raised over $350,000. The silent auction sold over 120 items and raised $28,000.

Executive Director Steve Pareja says they are appreciative of the ongoing support by donors and stakeholders.

Their generosity provides the resources needed to continue serving clients throughout central Minnesota. These gifts will make a positive difference in so many lives.

The proceeds will support Catholic Charities Emergency Services and Domus Transitional Housing, with programs that included a food shelf, clothing program, and financial assistance program and housing for single women and their children.
