DWU’s Children’s Miracle Network chapter to host kickoff

Wednesday, October 16, 2013

The Dakota Wesleyan University chapter of the Children’s Miracle Network will host a kickoff party this Saturday in Mitchell.

The event will be from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 19, at Northridge Park, across from Joe Quintal Field. In the event of rain, the outdoor activities will be cancelled and food will be moved to the football stadium. This event is free and open to the public.

There will be inflatables, provided by the National Guard, as well as bean bag toss, hot chocolate, hot cider and homemade snacks. The event’s purpose is to introduce the community to DWU-CMN. This is the second year Dakota Wesleyan has participated in and fundraised for CMN.  Last year, the university raised $5,000, which was given to the Sanford Castle of Care in Sioux Falls to continue to help local children and families in need. DWU’s goal this year is to raise $8,000.
