2021 Fall Fling Annual Gala

You are cordially invited to attend this year's 2021 Fall Fling Annual Gala at Rochester International Event Center on September 25th, 2021, from 5-10:30 pm. Ticket sales have closed, but we are excited to see all of you who purchased a ticket! For those who did not purchase a ticket, feel free to bid on our ten items posted online through the "Silent Auction" tab.

This event is held every year to celebrate and appreciate the accomplishments of the staff and volunteers at Elder Network. This event allows the community, faithful supporters, loyal funders, and others to participate in learning about the services that Elder Network has been offering to Olmsted, Wabasha, and Winona County seniors and caregivers, over the past year. This past year was an especially trying one, and Elder Network has remained busy serving the needs of clients amidst the pandemic. This year will be the first in-person fundraiser to have occurred for almost two years, and we are so grateful to be able to invite you to participate in the celebration.
