The Black & White Affair 2012- Party for a Purpose
The 5th Annual Black & White Affair was held at Barker’s Island Inn and was a great location for this year’s event. The community came together and donated some awesome gifts for the silent auction. There was also a very successful 50/50 raffle. Barker’s Island Inn provided the hors d’oeurves and donated their own Captain Barker’s Pale Ale for samples throughout the night. Saratoga Liquor donated the wine and Chila Orchata that everyone thoroughly enjoyed. We were lucky enough to have Cory Bonneville from Sounds Unlimited to be our MC for the evening. The Trends staff provided chair massages, hand massages, parrafin dips, and a scensory journey station. We were able to raise over $5000 to benefit our local CASDA chapter. Thanks to everyone who was able to attend or donate to this event!

Touched by Breast Cancer Golf Classic

By keeping our donations local, we were able to give St. Luke’s Breast Center and the Duluth Clinic Breast Center $25,000 last year alone. Over the last five years, the golf tournament has raised over $100,000 for breast cancer patients. The tournament is held on the fourth Friday of June each year at Nemadji Golf Course.
