The Angel Fund would like to thank schools in the Northeast Division of Student Councils for their recent generous donations. Each year the division chooses a charity and this year they were excited to choose us, as an organization which gives to people in their area who have cancer. Each year, the student councils at the schools within the division raise money through a variety of activities and the school with the highest donation per student wins the URock award. This year the URock award went to Indus High School for raising $500. Other schools in the division that made donations to us included Hibbing ($1000), Northwoods ($700) and Cherry ($900). We appreciate the generosity of the Division and these student councils!

With a heavy heart, Angel Fund’s Spring Classic Committee has decided that it will not be feasible for us to host this year’s third annual Hi-Fi Spring Classic fundraiser benefitting the Angel Fund. The event had been slated to accompany Mesaba Country Club’s annual Spring Classic Golf tournament (for more information on the tournament, contact Mesaba Country Club). This is a cancellation of the fundraising portion of the weekend (silent auction, dinner and live music). We look forward to reviving the fun in 2021!
