Thanks for successful Damien Home Tour

The Damien Society wishes to thank the generous people of our community for attending our 32nd Annual Damien Home Tour! This single-day event is our only fundraiser for the year, benefiting over 20 area charities.

Along with being a great activity for a day, the attendees contributed to charities ranging from abandoned/rescued animals (Humane Society/Marshmallow Foundation) to individuals and families in need (Lakes Crisis & Resource Center/Becker County Food Pantry/Boys & Girls Club of Detroit Lakes) and everything in between (Public Library, St. Mary's Foundation) just to name a few.

Without the lovely homes, year after year, we would not be able to raise funds for those in need. Special thanks go out to Russ Maring, Eric and Tammy Soyring, Bill and Velva Strand, Rich and Jodie Johnson and Walt and Julie Aanenson for opening their homes, providing an unbelievable array of home décor, design and individual tastes. DL Newspapers, KDLM Radio, Channel 3, Essentia Health St. Mary's, Central Market, Detroit Paint & Glass, DL Regional Chamber of Commerce, LA De Da Décor & Design, Jack Chivers Realty all played important roles in contributing to the success of the event. Huge thanks! Again, thank you so very much! -- DelRae Chivers, for the Damien Society, Detroit Lakes
