2013 Atons Holiday Fundraiser Benefits Aliveness Project and Clare House

(Published in Lavender Magazine, Issue #486, January 16, 2014)

Some of the food donated to the food drive.
On Sunday evening, Dec. 8, The Atons of Minneapolis welcomed the holiday season with their annual Holiday Fundraiser. The event was held in the Bolt Underground.

Food, drink and camaraderie were in abundance, and the bidding for silent auction items was intense. Everett Allen Photography was on hand to take pictures of attendees with Naughty Santa (Mr. Minneapolis Eagle 2013 Ryan Brown), and Great Lakes Bootblack Kai was shining boots and polishing leathers.

The fundraiser included a food drive that collected over 500 lbs. of food and other supplies to benefit the food shelf at The Aliveness Project. Donations at the door and through the silent auction totaled over $1,300 and benefited Clare House.

Shopping at the silent auction.

Lotsa raffle tickets.


Merry Christmas to all!
