Save the Date! June 1
Caring for Women Campaign Kickoff
Join us for our Caring for Women Campaign Kickoff event on June 1 at O’Neil’s Event Center in Spicer. We are excited to update, inspire, and ask you to join our campaign in 2023! We’ll share updates on last year's grant recipients, including Heather Jeseritz, Director of Community Services, at United Community Action Partnership (UCAP). We’ll inspire with grant goals for 2023. And, of course, we’ll invite you to join us in giving to the Caring for Women Campaign. Additionally, we’re looking forward to Mackenzie Dohmann, owner of Pink Apron Bakery, to provide a demo!
You can register on EventBrite at https://bit.ly/3KtQ4eh or call the Willmar Area Community Foundation office at (320) 235-4380 to reserve your spot.
We hope many of our donors and community supporters will attend the Kickoff. We promise to add some entertainment and inspiration in under two hours on your Thursday night, while enjoying great company and amazing appetizers and beverages from O’Neil’s. Please consider being a leader of women by supporting our 2023 campaign and making your donation at the Kickoff event.
