Annual Foundation Fundraising Events

One of the primary ways the Northern Lights Foundation raises money is by hosting annual fundraising events throughout the year. These events range from a formal dinner to a crazy singing competition involving cow bells. A majority of the events are open to the public and offer the community an opportunity to have fun while helping their friends and neighbors in need.
