Merrick Community Services’ third annual Merrick Mix and Mingle fundraiser is a social gathering of 200 philanthropists, community leaders, volunteers, and organization partners. This cocktail style event will be a fun and entertaining networking opportunity for people interested in making a difference on Saint Paul’s East Side. Live music and appetizers will kick off the Cocktail Hour starting at 5:30pm, followed by a sit‐down dinner with a video featuring Merrick’s impact on the community and a live auction featuring unique experience packages.
The event benefits low-income residents of Saint Paul’s East Side. Merrick provides a food shelf for families facing hunger, employment training and services for unemployed adults, self-sufficiency advocacy for families struggling with poverty, and youth development programming for low-income students on the East Side.
