Celebrate Talent, Fridley High School Auditorium, Tuesday, April 9, 2019
It was a fabulously fun evening of showcasing the many talents the people we support and our Rise team members have. The audience enjoyed singing, dancing, joke-telling, and much more. Special thanks to the tech team at Fridley High School Auditorium and community volunteers, including members of the St. Anthony Village High School Key Club, who helped make this such a great event.

Close to 100 people attended our 4th Tapping Into Possibilities event at the Hop & Barrel Brewing Co., 310 Second St. in downtown Hudson. It was a beautiful summer evening with music from DJ John Thorp, great food Big Guy's BBQ Roadhouse's food truck, quality craft brews, games and prizes -- and lots and lots of friendly people!
