In July, we come together to celebrate the St. Francis House. Those attending learn more about our continued work to provide a hand up to our guests instead of a hand out. During the event, awards are given out to those making a difference in the lives of our guests. This evening is also a time to educate the community on our needs by raising money for our operations through a live auction and a silent auction.
The 2019 dinner and auction will take place on Monday, July 22, at 5:30 pm at the Sioux Falls Convention Center. Reserve your tickets by completing the form on this page.
Due to our generous corporate sponsors, there is no cost for the event!
