Also this weekend Companions for kids held their annual fundraiser at the Grand Hotel with the goal of raising money to continue their mission.
Companions for Children is a local non profit that matches screened mentors with area children from non traditional parent homes.
They have been pairing Minot area kids with mentors for over forty years and some of the bonds have become life long.
Nearly three hundred people attended the event to partake in a massive silent auction and a live auction that included items donated from local businesses such as affinity first and I do Balloons and even Josh and Fergie Duhamel.
Area residents interested in getting involved with companions for kids as mentors should contact Heather Johnson via email at email@example.com
