Thanks for succesful LCRC banquet, auction

On behalf of the board, staff and volunteers of Lakes Crisis and Resource Center, I would like to extend a heartfelt thanks to the many people, organizations and businesses who supported our recent annual banquet and auction, “Family Power.” 

The capacity crowd at the Speak Easy was filled with kindness, generosity, friendship and fun — and, the bidding exceptional.

It all culminated in a show of warmth for the Lakes Crisis and Resource Center and the critical services it provides each day to victims of violence, families in need, and individuals utilizing our parenting time center and Mary’s Place.

The list is too long to thank the many donors of auction items but we do want to single out the night’s table sponsors: Joann Knapp, Leighton Broadcasting, Arvig, Free 2 Dream, Lakeshirts, Mickelson Farms, Mike and Kari Williams and John and Carol Moran, Quality Bait and Tackle, RLDC Motorcycle Club, Bremer Bank, Foltz Trucking, Jack Chivers Realty, Midwest Bank, Midwest Printing, Inc., Olaf Anderson, Shooting Star Casino.

Other keys to the night’s success were emcee Kathy Coyle, and auctioneer Jerome Tappe, who both did an outstanding job.

The generosity of the community continues to be a source of inspiration for us.

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you to everyone who worked so hard and shared their resources to make a difference. Our doors are always open and the lifesaving support we are able to offer is due in large part to your generosity. Thank you.
