Campaigns and Events
DARTS utilizes campaigns and events annually to connect with the community and our donors while providing opportunities to raise money throughout the year. Please consider supporting DARTS campaigns and events which will provide support and service to our aging community.
DARTS initiates both a spring and year-end mail campaign. The spring appeal arrives in mailboxes in April. The fall appeal goes out in November. Our goal for each of these campaigns is $50,000.

DARTS hosts multiple events each year that provide sponsorship opportunities for both individuals and corporations.
CEO Breakfasts – May, August 2013 Periodically throughout the year, DARTS hosts industry professionals at Mendakota Country Club for breakfast. This is an opportunity to meet DARTS CEO Greg Konat and share ideas on how we can make connections and contribute to building a stronger community together. In 2013, breakfasts are currently planned for March, May, and August.
Golf outing with DARTS CEO – September 2013, Mendakota Country Club. $5,000 sponsorship of this event will allow DARTS to host up to 40 community builders for an afternoon of golf, lunch and reception – no program or silent auction! This is a chance to multiply DARTS connections and maximize your gift and its impact.
Party. It. Forward. – October 12, 2013 Party It Forward is a fundraising birthday party hosted by Mike and Lori Dalglish as a way to get people together to celebrate and give back to the community in a meaningful way.
Mike and Lori Dalglish were in a car accident that left Lori needing intensive care. DARTS was one organization that helped Lori. Now, Lori volunteers her time at DARTS and they are celebrating their 40th birthdays by partying it forward!
This event takes place at the Crowne Plaza St. Paul Riverfront and is free to attend. To sponsor the event, to register to attend and for more information visit partyitforward.net. To make a donation or sponsor the event visit the donation page directly.
Consider asking yourself, “Is it possible to plan that family birthday party and contribute to a worthy cause at the same time?”
