Thanks for successful LCRC annual banquet

On behalf of Executive Director Jan Logan, the board, staff, banquet committee, and volunteers of Lakes Crisis & Resource Center, I would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the many people, organizations and businesses who supported and attended our recent annual banquet and auction: “Picture This! A Snapshot of Our Community in Action.” 

The Holiday Inn was literally filled, as tickets sold out for this annual event. It all culminated in a show of solidarity for the Lakes Crisis & 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 who offered financial support and helped fill the tables. Our Diamond Sponsors: DelRae and Jack Chivers, Scott and Nancy Erickson, Leighton Broadcasting, Mary Newman, Quality Bait & Tackle/Shirley Lee, and Sellin Brothers Inc.; our Platinum Sponsors: Arvig, Free 2 Dream, Lakeshirts, Ralph and Jan Logan, Trevor and Gretchen Thilmony, and Mike and Kari Williams; our Gold Sponsors: Bell State Bank, Bremer Bank, BTD, Essentia, Foltz Trucking, Mickelson Farms, Midwest Bank, Shooting Star Casino, and SJE Rhombus. Other keys to the night’s success were Kathy Coyle, emcee and Jerome Tappe, auctioneer, who 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. — Anna Sellin and the annual LCRC banquet committee
