GALA INFORMATION

The Scheels Arena 09/10/2021 6:00-10:00 PM

The Gala is our primary means in raising the funds used to purchase all the wishes that are packaged up in December and delivered to those dreaming of a joyful Christmas. The Gala pays tribute to the efforts of the community coming together to help children and families in need while raising money and awareness for the Great North Pole.

The event offers a variety of butler served hors d’oeuvres, signature cocktails, a dinner entrée, and scrumptious desserts. You will be entertained by a short program and a very lively live auction. The live auction features unique experience-based opportunities that you will not want to miss including travel packages, dining experiences, and many fun surprises!

We also host a silent auction that is guaranteed to have something for everyone. Be prepared to engage in a few bidding wars that are sure to ensue.

Along with the silent, and live auction, there are a variety of games to add to the evening’s entertainment, including the popular wine pull and ‘big board’ chance games. All to raise funds to support local families in need!
