The YPN’s annual holiday party was held on Saturday, December 5, at the Radisson Hotel in downtown Bismarck. More than 50 members enjoyed great conversations as well as complimentary beer, wine, and champagne (donated by the Ambassador Team). The event also kicked off fundraising for our 2015-2016 non-profit partnership with the American Red Cross Serving Western North Dakota.
There was a free-will donation box at the door and a raffle for thirty-three bottles of wine. Captain Jacks, Cash Wise, Gee Williquors and a few individuals were kind enough to donate bottles of wine to help raise funds for the American Red Cross. Winners of the wine raffle were announced at the end of the night and were able to choose a wrapped mystery bottle to take home. A few winners were lucky enough to win two or three bottles. A total of $819 was raised from the free-will donations and ticket sales. During the event, attendees also had the opportunity to express their gratitude for military service members. Many attendees wrote a note of thanks on several cards for the Air Force and National Guard.
Thank you to everyone who donated, purchased tickets and attended the event!
