Proceeds from the event are provided as unrestricted grants to local families with a child facing a life-threatening illness in our community.

Everyone is invited to the  2019 Northern Lights Foundation's Children's Charity Gala on Thursday, May 16th, 2019 at 6 o'clock in the evening.

The annual gala is the Northern Lights Foundation's largest fundraiser of the year. The money raised stays local - within 100 miles of Duluth - this night is all about neighbors helping neighbors because all a parent should have to worry about is their child, not the financial burden during such a dark time.

This is an opportunity to support a local charity while enjoying an evening at the Harborside Ballroom and hear the captivating story of the Sauer Family - a Duluth family with a 3-year-old daughter, Misha, diagnosed with a very rare form of leukemia in 2018.

This event includes a social hour, silent auction, dinner, program and live auction. You can donate online and if you want to bid on a silent auction, you can donate up until May 1st, 2019.

Please contact Katie Marturano with any questions or donations at
