Join 300 community leaders as they celebrate the unique achievements of Life House's at-risk and homeless youth.

Maude Dornfeld joined us on the set. She is the Executive Director of Life House.

Maude tells us that Thursday night at the celebration, there will be a social hour, ceremony and dinner.  At-risk and homeless youth will be honored. Maude says that, "It's our version of a grad party, we want to recognize the youth who've completed their education...and we also recognize youth who've enrolled in college or stayed in college."

Maude continues, saying that many of those are the first in their family to go to college.

This is a great fundraiser for Life House to continue their great work! In addition to the ceremony, Senator Klobuchar will be there to speak about new sex trafficking legislation. There will also be musical entertainment.

Thursday, May 29th, the social hour begins at 4:30 p.m., with the ceremony and dinner at 5:30 p.m.  You can get tickets here, and learn more on their website, lifehouseduluth.org. You can also connect with them on Facebook.
