Minot Steps Up

Posted: Updated:

Last month, a typhoon hit the Central Philippines completely destroying entire towns and villages. Recent reports say nearly 6,000 died and more than 1,700 are missing. But, there's a group in Minot giving back in a unique way this holiday season. Churches and non-profit organizations in the area are teaming up for Minot Steps Up this Friday at Margie's Art Glass Studio. The event will feature an authentic Philippine cuisine and live acoustic musical performances by local artists.

Several event coordinators have close ties to the Philippines and wanted to do something special to help those going through a natural disaster, which is something all too familiar for some.

"The typhoon really hits close to home, because we just had the flood a few years ago. And Lutheran Disaster Response, who's also over in the Philippines, actually spent the last two to three years here helping rebuild. So, we kind of look at this happening as a way or an opportunity for us to pay it forward," says coordinator Dan Hansen.

"Just to be a part of something positive in our community that's going to be helping in such a big way in a different community," says Stephanie Fournier, Minot Steps Up.

The dinner and show will run from 5-9 p.m. this Friday at Margie's Art Glass Studio.  There will also be ugly sweaters for sale and a gingerbread house contest.  All proceeds from the event go towards the Philippines typhoon relief efforts.  For more information visit https://www.facebook.com/RockTheLeaves.
