The annual gala is the largest fundraising event of the year for HDC. Thanks to all those who participated and donated last year, we were able to raise over $70,000 to support our mental health programs and services. Proceeds from our event support our mission of providing integrated, culturally respectful mental health and addiction services that foster hope, self-determination and recovery.

Guests can expect a different experience than they are used to for our sixth annual gala. At "Cirque Du Hope," the Greysolon Ballroom transforms into a majestic evening where guests can share stories, network, have fun and support HDC. The night includes plentiful hors d'oeuvres, live performances, interactive games, a raffle and a silent auction. HDC received generous donations from all over the region.

HDC is a non-profit community mental health center that serves Cook, Lake, Carlton and St. Louis County in Minnesota and Douglas County in Wisconsin.
