The United Way of Hastings would like to thank the over 400 community members who celebrated 50 years of helping individuals in the Hastings area community by attending the 50th Anniversary Gala on Saturday evening, February 8. Thank you to the St Elizabeth Ann Seton staff for working with us to transform Mother Seton Hall into a winter wonderland, to Glenda Wytaski of G Designs and Joan Endres who elegantly decorated Mother Seton Hall, to Jay Kochendorfer of Adagio Lighting who provided brilliant mood lighting and carefully made sure the event lighting was flawless, to Silkie Strings Trio led by Sarah Lockwood who provided beautiful classical music. The food and service by CRAVE Catering was spectacular. The collaboration of KDWA AM 1460 and Hastings Community TV Channel 14 with Tom Wright and team to bring us an amazing red carpet experience was an amazing touch. And to Tom Kranz at Graphic Design Inc for working to get us the red carpet banner, and Dee Bergschneider at The UPS Store for providing the awesome signage and printed materials. To Joe Hannah, for his prayer prior to dinner, and to Dan Massman for helping make the program a success. We hope you enjoyed emcee Jamie Yuccas from WCCO Channel 4 and keynote speaker Matt Birk as much as we did. Soon we’ll make available the amazing photos from Dan Rother Photography. Platinum Sponsor Smead Manufacturing and Sharon Avent helped us make the evening possible, thank you. We extend our appreciation to the many other sponsors listed on our website at www.unitedwayhastings.org
