Giving Gala brings three non-profits together

By  | 

EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) -- Three local non-profits are hosting a gala Friday night to benefit the families of the Chippewa Valley.

Camp Manitou, Girls on the Run of the Chippewa Valley, and Junior League collaborated to present the Giving Gala at the Lismore Hotel in Eau Claire. The event features a silent auction along with live music.

This the first time the three organizations are working together to create this fundraiser.

“There are so many events know happening in Eau Claire it would be cool to give the community the opportunity to come and support three great organizations in one night,” Ellie Siedow with Girls on the Run of the Chippewa Valley said to WEAU 13 News on Friday.

Proceeds from the event will go toward program scholarships for Girls on the Run and Camp Manitou, and support Junior League's Diaper Bank and Kids in the Kitchen programs.
