Throughout the year we have several fun events planned that are open to the public. Additional information for each event, including registering, sponsorships, tickets, etc., will be available online as we get closer to the individual events. Here are just a few -
Online Auction -- A 24-Person Suite For A Minnesota Twins Game!
Jodi Jockisch was the top bidder of Rise's summer online auction. She won a 24-person suite at Target Field for the Minnesota Twins August 7th game. Thank you to Jodi for supporting our work of pushing boundaries and unlocking possibilities.
Tapping Into Possibilities
Supporters enjoyed our summer "friend-raiser" celebration, Tapping Into Possibilities. This year's event was held at the Bauhaus Brew Lab, in Nordeast Minneapolis the evening of July 17. For a peek at the fun, check out our Facebook photo album.
Celebrate Rise Fundraising Gala, October 5
Through the generosity of close to 500 guests, corporate and individual sponsors, and other event donors, monies raised at our 6th Annual Celebrate Rise Fundraising Gala topped $120,000! The event was held October 5 at the Minneapolis Marriott Northwest in Brooklyn Park.
Emceed by Kate Raddatz, news reporter from WCCO- TV, the evening was filled with many special activities. Guests enjoyed fun social hour games, prize drawings, great food, a live auction, and an entertaining awards program.
Volunteer Co-Chairs Angie Franzen and Jenny Poyorena are grateful to the men and women who volunteered their time and talents to help plan and carry out the evening’s festivities.
Rise is also appreciative of the outpouring of generous donations of items and services from area businesses and individuals for the auction, games, and drawings.

We hope you will mark your calendar for the 7th Annual Celebrate Rise Fundraising Gala on Monday, October 22, 2018. Information regarding sponsorships, volunteer opportunities, and registration will be available this coming spring.
