2017 Celebration Web Photo 2.0

Each and every day, Minnesotans are touched by the compassionate services provided by Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota. For many neighbors, partnering with LSS brings life-changing hope, stability and opportunity. And that is truly something to celebrate!

We invite you and all of our supporters who share our passion of caring for our neighbors to join us at this year’s Celebration for Changing Lives on Saturday, September 23, 2017.

This year’s Celebration will feature live music, inspiring stories of lives changed and a special artful metaphor of people working together to build stronger communities. Guests will also have the opportunity to support LSS’s vital mission during our annual Fund-the-Need auction, helping to ensure all Minnesotans have access to LSS services when they need them most.

Join us for this fantastic evening, and invite your friends, family and community members who also desire to make a change in the lives of others!
