“Toast to Autumn,” the annual fundraiser for the Sartell-St. Stephen Education Foundation, will take place from 6-9 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 10 at Mulligan’s Event Center in Sartell.
Each year, the SSEF gives thousands of dollars to academic programs in pre-school to 12th grade. The foundation also gives several scholarships. Since its beginning, the foundation has been accruing funds to shore up a long-time, self-sustaining foundation that would be able to assist generations of students and student learning.
Tickets for Toast to Autumn can be purchased online (www.ssef.net) or at the door the night of the event.
Toast to Autumn includes wine- and beer-tasting, hors d’oeuvres, a jewelry raffle, a silent auction and socializing.
For more information, call 320-433-0748.
