Welcome to the Avera St. Mary's Foundation

Emerald CityWelcome to the Emerald City!

Avera St. Mary’s Foundation is gearing up for the annual gala, Friday, March 7th. This year we have set a goal to raise $50,000 in one night to help save lives! Avera St. Mary’s Foundation has pledged to assist folks with up to $500 in out of pocket expenses when they schedule a Colonoscopy Screening during March.

Join us at the event and enjoy an elegant buffet, featuring South Dakota beef from the South Dakota Beef Industry Council and we’ll have a Lenten option, too. Our famous Dessert Auction has a new twist this year and we’ll play Saints & Sinners, too. Pierre Music, Riddle’s Jewelry, Dakota Prairie Bank, Wal-Mart and Carrie Mikkonen made that event and the prizes possible; THANK YOU SPONSORS!

We’ll feature our Wine Pull again, this year. In addition to the $20 donation for an outstanding bottle of wine (we’ve got bottles valued at over $100), we also have a special prize. For an additional $10 donation, you’ll have a chance to win a Gloria Ferrar Sonoma County Sparkling Wine MAGNUM! Plus, once all of the wine has been won, Modern Woodmen of America will match our funds in the Wine Pull and donate an additional $500 to our Colonoscopy Screening fund.
