A Story Worth Sharing

Do you remember the 15th night of November? We know we do! When it comes to difference-makers, the Fire & Ice South of the River Gala leads the pack. This past Friday, we had the opportunity to both attend and support 360 Communities at the annual Fire & Ice Gala at Brackett’s Crossing Country Club in Lakeville!

Upon entering the club, guests were greeted with the sleekest, the shiniest, sophisticated-est Lincoln Navigator and Lincoln Aviator (we’re not biased). Through the doors, gold and blush tones showered the banquet room. Silent auction items included everything from signed sports memorabilia to a trip to Italy! And of course a weekend in a Lincoln and shopping spree. Laughs echoed as champagne flowed, but undoubtedly the highlight of the night was hearing Leonna’s success story and finding out that she was actually in attendance! Click here to see how 360 Communities helped her and her 3 children find stability and hope.

Emcee, Dave Oswald presented a lofty goal to the crowd at the beginning of the evening which involved raising $5,000 more than the previous year. And you’ll never guess what happened… The community doubled the difference! $10,000 over the goal was raised and 360 Communities ended the evening with $80,000 that will go directly towards reaching their dream to deliver safety and stability to their surrounding community!

And that called for celebration! The entertainment for the evening went by the name of Riverside Hitmen. If their rendition of Earth, Wind, and Fire’s “September” wasn’t enough to get you on the dance floor, surely Bruno Mars’ “Uptown Funk” would do the trick. Full hearts and sore feet seemed like the perfect way to end a legendary night!

We are so incredibly grateful to know and partner with 360 Communities. Find out how you can support organizations like 360 Communities this holiday season just by visiting Apple Autos. Click here!
