Throughout the year Rise has several 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 some of them -
Celebrate Rise! Fundraising Gala went VIRTUAL on October 26, 2020
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Rise changed its annual Celebrate Rise Fundraising Gala to a VIRTUAL ONLINE event this year. If you weren't able to tune in to join us on October 26, you can watch the 28-minute program here!
With gifts from generous sponsors and donors, we raised more than $90,000! We have just $10,000 to go to reach our goal this year.
You can help!
If you would like to make a donation, you can do so online here. Or visit our website and click on the DONATE button at the top of the homepage. If you would rather mail in a donation, please send your check to Rise Development Office, 8406 Sunset Road N.E., Spring Lake Park, MN 55432.
During the program, we also honored this year's Rise'ing Stars and Champions of the Mission. You can watch their awards video here.
We also met a great guy, Steven Eull, who exemplifies hard work and generosity. Meet Steven in this three-minute video.
Be sure to save the date for our Celebrate Rise Fundraising Gala next year: November 4, 2021, when we celebrate 50 years -- hopefully, together in person!
