Community Action Duluth Hosting New Fundraiser at Bent Paddle

Created: June 25, 2019 07:14 AM

A new fundraiser from Community Action Duluth is happening Thursday, June 27 at Bent Paddle Brewing Company. It's called "Summer Dream."


In addition to the beer, there's a raffle with many different prizes and a live musical performance from "Sibling Rivalry." Julia Cheng, who is with the nonprofit, says Bent Paddle was the perfect place to hold a less-formal event.

"They're really concerned about their place in the community and supporting the people in Lincoln Park," She says. 

Organizers are hoping to target a demographic that may not have come to one of their past events, but are interested in this one. 

All proceeds go toward the nonprofit. Community Action Duluth has many different programs, but Porsha Cline says the main goal is to help local residents out of poverty.

"We do that with our free tax site, financial coaching, home ownership counseling..." she explains. 

WDIO is a proud sponsor of this event.
