Give to the Max!

Give to the Max, an annual all day all night giving event for nonprofits across the state of MN is taking place this coming Thursday, November 13th, 2014. If you have been meaning to give, now is the time! It's simple, just go to the link here, and schedule your donation for November 13th. You can do it right now so you don't forget.

The Dakota Valley Symphony and Chorus could win cash prizes during the day. Every hour a random drawing will add $1,000 to an individual donation! And one $10,000 winner will be chosen as well. More importantly, however, your support means we can continue to provide an opportunity for musicians to perform and to provide quality musical experiences for residents of the south suburban Twin Cities area and beyond. We could not do this without you. Thank you! We hope to see you at our upcoming Handel's Messiah performance on Sunday, December 7th 2014 at 2 p.m. or 7 p.m. or both!
