NEWSBRIEF: Get early bird pricing for upcoming seventh Annual Party It Forward Celebration

DARTS, a community-based nonprofit serving seniors and their families in Dakota County, will be hosting their annual Party It Forward fundraiser at Lost Spur Golf and Event Center in Eagan, on Oct. 13 from 7 to 11p.m. 

Party It Forward started as Mike and Lori Dalglish’s birthday celebrations to raise money for DARTS, whose transportation services were instrumental during Lori’s recovery from a life-threatening car accident. This October, DARTS will be celebrating its seventh Party It Forward event.

The celebration raised $62,000 in 2017. This year, the event will utilize mobile auction bidding through the GiveSmart system. This money helps to ensure community transportation needs are met and seniors can receive help regardless of their ability to pay. 

Auction items so far include homemade jewelry, professional sport gear, brewery tours and more items arriving daily. The evening festivities start at 7 p.m. with three food stations and a cash bar. A raffle booth, wine pull and live and silent auction items are up for bid throughout the night. All proceeds go directly to DARTS. 

Tickets are $30 with an early bird special before Sept. 30. After that, tickets can be purchased at the door for $40. Tickets are available by calling 651-455-1560 or on the DARTS website under events.
