Our 10th Annual Purses for Partners luncheon was held on Saturday, April 22, 2017, in the Grand Ballroom at the Gull Lake Center at Grandview Lodge. This event was a huge success for Kinship Partners bringing in over $17,000 to help with our mentorship program. All proceeds from this event benefit our kinship partners programs in Crow Wing County, Southern Cass County, and the Staples/Motley area.
