Dinner to Donate ~ June 15th

Hope you will join us at the Northwoods Partners 9th Annual Dinner to Donate on June 15th. This year’s theme is ‘What’s on your Bucket List?’, and will be held at the Grand Ely Lodge.  The fun begins at 5:00 p.m. with a social hour and silent auction.  Dinner will begin at 6:00 p.m..  Attendees will have plenty of time to buy raffle tickets for a variety of theme buckets filled with  items that can help you cross off some things on your bucket list. Our silent auction includes such things as pontoon boat rental, a wooden canoe paddle, Steger Moccasins, Class 5 Dirt, spa packages, and gift certificates to many local merchants and restaurants.  This year we will be playing a Heads and Tails game for a chance to win an outdoor wooden chair, table and ottoman. Dinner tickets are $35 each with thirty percent of the proceeds going to help support Northwoods Partners programs and services. Tickets are available by calling at the NP office at 365-8019. Call soon as remaining tickets are limited.

Attending our events is an excellent way to show your support for Northwoods Partners services in Ely and the surrounding communities.  Our mission is to provide resources that promote independence and healthy aging. These services include transportation to medical appointments, friendly visits, individual and group exercise programs, memory care support groups in Ely and Babbitt, and education, support and resources & referrals for caregivers and their families. Our vision is a community where people are able to age with dignity. Your support is crucial if we are to continue to successfully serve a growing aging client base in the greater Ely area. Your generous support of events, such as the fundraising dinner on June 15, will assist us in meeting the very real and basic needs of many.

We look forward to sharing the evening with you as well as celebrating what an amazing community we have to live in!
