LEAP 2017 Recap

The Division of Indian Work (DIW)  is basking in the glow of a wonderful evening of giving and sharing at our LEAP benefit on February 27.  Over three hundred people enjoyed the food and drink, visited with old friends...and made new connections... while enjoying the beautiful ambiance at the Metropolitan. 

Thank you to all who came, particularly our table hosts who generated enthusiasm and attendance so effectively.  Thank you to our wonderful performers: Maria Jette, Dan Chouinard and Jearlyn Steele who donated their incredible talent.   We are enormously grateful to our sponsors whose funding more than covered our expenses, ensuring that every penny raised at LEAP went directly to Horizons Unlimited, the food shelf at DIW.  

We are delighted to tell you that we raised nearly $60,000!   The upshot?  Horizons Unlimited will now be open four days a week, will be able to order another $1,000 of food each month, and can provide holiday baskets for more clients. 

We're already making plans for next year's benefit!  Save the date: February 26, 2018!  If you're interested in serving on our committee or volunteering at the event, or if you have an auction item you think we could use, please contact Ardie Medina at amedina@diw-mn.org  

Thank you!  Miigwech!  Pidamiyaye! See you at LEAP 2018!
