Minot YWCA Fundraiser

Posted: Updated:

 

The YWCA, the women's shelter in Minot, has been helping the community for years. But yesterday, the community decided to give back.

Local Minot businesses came together for a craft fair and silent auction at the Vegas Motel. One hundred percent of the proceeds from the silent auction and vendor fees will go directly to the YWCA.  Twenty five businesses including Pampered Chef, Jamboree Nails and Damsels in Defense came out in support of the event.

"It's pretty encouraging because they're giving back to something that means something to me," says event coordinator, Kim Truax. "It may not mean anything to them, a lot of people it does mean something too, and that's why they're here.  They're here to support that cause."

The YWCA offers a shelter for women and their children, Transitional housing, Counseling and other social services.
