Minot Soccer Fundraiser Gala is Friday night

MINOT, N.D. – Friday night you have the chance to support the development of youth soccer in Minot.

The Minot Soccer Association is hosting a formal 21 and up soccer gala at the Holiday Inn Riverside from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.

There will be a silent auction from 5 to 6, a former dinner, live entertainment, and a dance afterwards underneath a giant soccer ball.

The goal is to raise money for a scholarship and for new equipment, so less fortunate youngsters in Minot can enjoy soccer.

“Not everyone gets the opportunity to go and play a sport, and to have the opportunity as a kid, if your family is just not having the extra funds to go play, and you might have that opportunity, that feels like that void in your heart, like you feel bad for kids that can't enjoy maybe what your kid is playing,” said Sara Dufner, one of the gala organizers.

If you're interested in attending and want to purchase a ticket, you can search "Soccer Gala” on Facebook to learn more, or call Jen Wagner 701-509-5275 or Sara Dufner 701-720-2453.
