What You Can Expect at the 2017 EP Gives

If you’re attending our 2017 EP Gives event on Saturday, April 29, we have an exciting evening for you.

Oak Ridge Conference Center in Chaska is a fantastic new venue for this annual Foundation event, and we’ll take full advantage by offering great hors d’oeuvres, drinks, socializing, a one-hour program, coffee and dessert, and dancing to The Dap Squad.

Check out our EP Gives Fact Sheet with a lot more detail on what ticket holders can expect Saturday.

We also have a great line-up of Live Auction items, from vino to vacations, so come prepared to bid. (Please note: There is an update and an addition to an auction item in the original version of this blog post: “Sunset Pontoon Cruise on Lake Riley for 8 with Let’s Go Fishing.” Due to capacity and safety issues, the Sunset Cruise is for 8 and in addition to the picnic, Nothing Bundt Cakes is providing a selection of desserts. Yum!)

During the program, we’ll hold a special fundraising appeal for the Youth Initiative, raising money for after-school activity scholarships, a fifth-grade curriculum about good decision-making, and the Dr. Jean L. Harris Scholarship.

Our 2017 EP Gives event is brought to you by title sponsor Starkey Hearing Technologies, and a long list of other great sponsors. Please patronize them.
