On December 13, 2013, over 150 people gathered together at the Washington Pavilion for a reception and concert in support of The Community Outreach! Together, we raised over $15,000 to support those in need in the Sioux Empire!
Because of these gifts, we are able to support our General Fund and continue to make a difference in the Sioux Empire!
The night opened with a reception in the Schulte Room where attendees were treated to musical entertainment by Matt and Amy Morrison. A silent auction featured the generosity of many people and organizations in the area including Augustana College, University of Sioux Falls, the Minnesota Twins, the Minnesota Vikings, EmBe, and the Sioux Falls Jazz & Blues Society.
Gwendolyn Beaudion shared her Genesis testimony and the importance that her mentors played and continue play in her life. She emphasized that the values and skills that she learned through Genesis has helped her to become a successful business owner.
Aubrey Bohl and Dakota Road serenaded the audience with beautiful Christmas music in the Belbas Theater.
A huge thank you to our sponsors: Avera McKennan, JDS Industries, Availability Employment, First National Bank, MetaBank, Sioux Falls Construction, Eide Bailly, and Jeff & Cynthia Nelson!
