Taste of the Lakes

We are pleased to announce Kinship Partners will be hosting its 30th Annual Taste of the Lakes on Friday, November 9, 2018, at Grandview Lodge in Nisswa. Come and celebrate with your friends, family, and co-workers at this gourmet dining event and help support Kinship Partners. The premier chefs will provide an evening of gourmet tastes and the samples of wine and beer contribute to making this a very special occasion.  Along with a silent auction, it is an “eat a little, drink a little, bid a little…” evening of merriment for everyone!  All proceeds benefit the Kinship Partners youth mentoring programs.
  *A limited number of tickets will be sold and must be purchased in advance*
Tickets are $100 per person. Click here to purchase tickets or call 218-454-8014.

Become a 2018 Taste of the Lakes Sponsor
The funds raised at Taste of the Lakes provide dedicated volunteers to hundreds of children each year, and we want you to be a part of it. As a sponsor, you will enjoy many benefits including recognition before and during the event as well as tickets to Taste of the Lakes (benefits determined by sponsorship level).  For questions about sponsoring this event, please contact David Downing at 218.454.8013 or via email

Plan your own fundraiser
Kinship Partners welcomes fundraisers planned by members of the community that help us speak up for more children in Central Minnesota who need a mentor. Fundraisers can be large or small, events open to the public or private fundraising parties, or even entirely held online.

If you are interested in designating Kinship Partners as the beneficiary of a fundraiser, please contact David Downing at 218.454.8013 or via email at davidd@kinshippartners.org at least 30 days before the event. 

Join a Kinship Partners event committee
Kinship Partners events are run by volunteer committees who work closely with our Events Coordinator. Volunteering on an event committee is a great way to support and get to know Kinship Partners, especially if you don’t think volunteering as a mentor is right for you at this time.

Find out more about joining one of our event committees by contacting Kinship Partners at 218.454.8014 or via email at marilynh@kinshippartners.org
