for Mental Health.

Imagine breaking into a cold sweat at the thought of leaving the house. You’d feel lonely, frustrated, and lost—trapped by complications within your own mind. Then imagine what it might feel like to have someone come along and plant a seed of hope—helping you free yourself from that mental cage.

CCRI is that seed of hope for more than 100 Minnesotans. And we need your help.

Resources are not keeping up with demand. We needed a 23% funding increase. We got 3%. Yet without our vital mental health services, many people would have nowhere else to turn.

How to Help Plant a Seed of Hope

Buy a Ticket—Enjoy a delicious meal while dining at tables transformed into works of art as you listen to inspirational stories of hope.

Your $85 ticket includes:

  • Fresh salad greens topped with cucumbers, tomatoes, and dressing.
  • A dinner roll w/butter.
  • Your choice of:
    • Marinated grilled chicken breast topped with a creamy fontina cheese sauce, served with roasted red potatoes and baby French green beans.
    • Grilled pork ribeye topped with a homemade cherry chutney, served with garlic mashed potatoes and glazed baby carrots.
    • Ricotta-filled ravioli served with sautéed mushrooms, spinach, and roasted sweet potatoes, finished with truffle brown butter and parmesan cheese.
  • Your choice of blueberry white chocolate cheesecake or caramel brownie cheesecake.
  • A $50 tax-deductible donation to CCRI.

You’ll also have an opportunity to win some incredible prizes through games, raffles, and a silent auction!
