Fundraiging Events at1 (2).jpg

As one of central Minnesota's premier event headquarters, there's no better place than the St. Cloud River’s Edge Convention Center to host your fundraising event. We offer large gathering spaces, plenty of parking, and a convenient location in historic downtown St. Cloud. Dozens of organizations trust us with their fundraiser all throughout the year, but here are a few that are coming up soon or have taken place recently:

Evening For Life - Annual Birthline Benefit

On October 6th, Birthline hosted its annual benefit entitled “Evening For Life.” Admission to the fundraiser was free, and Birthline encouraged attendees to give donations. What made this benefit a success was the speaker, Chris Shepherd. He shared the story of his late wife’s act of selfless love as they chose confidently and courageously to continue her pregnancy amid a cancer discovery. This story allowed benefit participants to put themselves in the shoes of someone who could really use the help of Birthline and give donations with empathy.

March of Dimes Signature Chefs Auction

Coming up on November 10th, River’s Edge Convention Center will host the Signature Chefs Auction fundraiser for March of Dimes. This benefits the research, education, advocacy and programs that help more moms have full-term pregnancies and healthy babies. March of Dimes raised money at this fundraiser by both selling tickets and hosting an auction. They made the event valuable for their attendees by providing a culinary tasting experience and evening program.

Holly Ball

On December 3rd, one of central Minnesota's biggest fundraisers will be hosted at the River’s Edge Convention Center; The Holly Ball. This is a gala event where proceeds benefit the St. Cloud Hospital Hospice and Coborn Cancer Center Greatest Needs Funds. The evening includes music for dancing and entertainment; this year, the main event features Boogie Wonderland and DJ Rage. There is a silent auction where guests can donate an item for others to bid on. And, of course, the benefit raises money through selling tickets to the event. Holly Ball was wildly successful in 2015, raising more than $700,000.
