Victory Over Violence Gala & Auction

March 23, 2019 - March 23, 2019

Victory Over Violence, presented by Gundersen Health System, is a community coming together to help end domestic violence, sexual assault, and human trafficking. Victory Over Violence Gala & Auction is many things–including New Horizons’ largest fundraiser of the year!

We hope you will join us–Saturday, March 23rd at the Cargill Room at the Waterfront Restaurant & Tavern starting at 5:30pm. We’ll have live music, delicious food, amazing items to win, and incredible finds on the live auction! Tickets are just $40 and are on sale now via the link at the bottom of this page.

Dave Skogen, Chairman of Festival Foods and advocate of Servant Leadership will be the keynote speaker. In addition to running a successful chain of grocery stores, Skogen and his wife, Barbara have been instrumental supporters in many community projects. Everything they do is rooted in the concept of Servant Leadership. Skogen believes we are created to serve others in all that we do. He follows the philosophy that in order to be a leader, one must first be a servant to others. You don’t want to miss his inspiring talk at this year’s Victory Over Violence Gala and Auction.
