Valentines for Foster Youth

On January 16, students from Stillwater Junior High created Valentines for the foster youth our recruiters are working with. In all, the students created 39 unique cards.

A huge thank you to our wonderful volunteers and your heart-felt Valentines!

Golf Tournament Coming Up

It’s only January, but some days it feels like spring! A perfect reminder that our annual golf tournament and banquet is just around the corner!
On Monday, May 11th, we’ll be returning to the beautiful Southview Country Club, just outside of downtown Saint Paul. Non-golfers are encouraged to attend the evening banquet! Great food, silent auction items, and other prizes!
As always, this tournament supports the mission of EVOLVE. To learn more, register, sponsor, or donate a silent auction item for this event, follow the link:
