The April 6 fundraiser for our August 2013 Volunteer Trip to the Lakota Nation’s Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota was a rousing success!  It was an amazing evening with a beautiful benefit concert by the Kromm family, and a crazy fun Silent Auction that raised funds, awareness of and will support more outreach to the Oglala Lakota Sioux on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota.

Thanks to the hard work and the many gifts and donations made by literally hundreds of people and businesses–we were blessed with over ten thousand dollars of funds which will be given directly to this volunteer effort.  Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Everyone who participated was delighted to be a part and we received many thank you notes from those who did.  Here are a few of the things that people said about the evening:
