Power of Love Gala 2019

May 17, 2019

The Power of Love Gala is Wingspan Life Resources’ annual event which raises funds to enhance the lives of the vulnerable people we serve–adults with developmental and other disabilities. Come and enjoy dinner, games, silent auction, and find out about the great programs Wingspan provides in our communities. Our event will be held Friday, May 17, 2019 at the Marriott Northwest in Brooklyn Park. Tickets are $100 per person and parking is free. Sponsorship levels start at just $300 and all levels include tickets. Returning as our emcee and guest artist this year is one of the Twin Cities favorite vocal and theatrical performers, Erin Schwab. Erin appears regularly at Crooners Lounge and Supper Club, is a regular guest on the Jason Show, and recently performed in Mama Mia at the Ordway.  Proceeds from the gala may support needs including technology, handicap accessible vehicles, improving accessibility for any of our 28 group homes, and sustaining important programming.  For more information, call 651-888-3112.
