Options for Women/Cornerstone of St. Michael would like to thank the community for making the 2nd annual Harvest of Hope Gala, held September 25th at Classic Hall in Annandale, a great success. As a result of the Gala, the Center is thrilled to report two major accomplishments; fundraising goals were surpassed and many more communities in the greater Wright County area are now aware of the services offered at the pregnancy resource and medical center in St. Michael. Not surprisingly, Options for Women/Cornerstone has also seen an increase in client traffic requiring additional volunteers in the near future.
Harvest of Hope guests were treated to an outstanding meal catered by Cottage Gourmet and had the opportunity to bid on over 100 items at the Gala’s Silent Auction thanks to the generous donations of many individuals and local businesses.
Shawn Carney, the motivational and inspiring keynote speaker, discussed the importance of building a culture of life one community at a time. The presence of nearly 300 guests including pastors and youth leaders from the Wright County area, were a testament to the strong foundation the Center is building upon in the area. Several guests thanked Options for Women/Cornerstone for their presence in Wright County and were eager to collaborate in the future.
Options for Women | Cornerstone wishes to thank all of the generous donors, volunteers, and guests for making the Gala a great success!
