Luau event benefits Family Resource CenterWhen children receive the support they need in their early childhood years, they are prepared to reach for the stars later in life. That’s the goal of the Family Resource Center St. Croix Valley — and the name of the organization’s upcoming annual dinner gala.
When children receive the support they need in their early childhood years, they are prepared to reach for the stars later in life. That’s the goal of the Family Resource Center St. Croix Valley — and the name of the organization’s upcoming annual dinner gala.
This year’s event, “Reach for the Stars: a Hawaiian Luau,” will take place on Sunday, April 29, from 4:30–8:30 p.m. at the Hudson Golf Club. The evening will feature a gourmet tropical dinner, music, inspiring speakers, raffle drawings, silent and live auctions, and the famous dessert auction.
Everyone is welcome to attend Reach for the Stars. Tickets are available for $50 per person when purchased by Thursday, April 12, or $60 per person thereafter.
Contact FRCSCV at 715-684-4440 or email@example.com for more information.
All proceeds from Reach for the Stars will help fund FRCSCV’s free services for children and families in Pierce, Polk and St. Croix counties.
“The Family Resource Center believes that an investment in our children is an investment in our community and our future. We invite all community members to join us for Reach for the Stars: a Hawaiian Luau, and help ensure that all St. Croix Valley children have the resources they need to reach for the stars,” said Patricia Draxler, FRCSCV executive director.
