Thanks to those who have already supported or attended the 6th Annual SpudTacular Gala! We're grateful for our production partnership with Livewire to create an engaging evening, sharing about MLEF's mission in action for the benefit of Moorhead Schools and students.

If you missed it, you can view the full program directly on our fundraiser platform and we ask that you consider a free-will donation for access. 


The gala included entertainment by Apollo Strings, the cast of "Rock of Ages" from Moorhead High, and Kathie Brekke and The 42nd Street Jazz Band with musical guest and MHS Alum, Matt Tinjum. Catering was provided by Moorhead Schools, a new program within dining services at the Career Academy. The evening was made possible by our sponsors listed on our website. Thank you!

Visit our FIRESALE auction of unsold items, including a couple new wine packages and a SpudMobile Ride! This portion of the auction will close on Sunday, October 16th.

Attendees - we want to see your selfies from the gala! Text your Team Orange, Black and White pics to our online Quickshare album at #218-304-9679.

Additional gala photos can be found on our Facebook page.

 During the gala, Kevin Wallevand introduced several guest speakers that included individuals directly impacted by donor dollars, like the Spud Scholars in this video shared at the gala. 

It's not too late to give!

As we wrap up the celebration and kick off to great school year to come, please know your donations make a huge difference in what MLEF can do for the students, families and staff of Moorhead Schools.
