On behalf of everyone at Love in the Name of Christ of Eastern Carver County, we thank you so much for your support and for joining with us in celebrating our first decade of mobilizing the church to transform lives in the name of Christ in Eastern Carver County. Ten years and thousands of clients later, we celebrated together at our 10th Anniversary Gala “Cheers to 10 Years!” on Friday, February 17, at Hazeltine National Golf Club.
It was truly a night to remember and we are so honored to have your support. We had such an exciting evening – great food, music, fellowship and testimonials! Together, we raised more than $30,000 to benefit Love INC as we continue our important work of bringing help and hope to our neighbors in need.
A special thank you to our amazing sponsors and partners who help make this event such a success. We are grateful for your dedication to our mission.
