KMSU auction announces 2nd story as the 2010 beneficiary
The Minot State University Program of Broadcasting will host their 12th annual KMSU auction on Dec. 2. The auction will air live on KMSUís Channel 19 at 6:30 p.m.
This year, the broadcasting program will be donating 10 percent of the proceeds to 2nd Story, a Minot social club dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for adults with developmental disabilities. The organization plans various social, educational and recreational activities for its members throughout the year, and it strives to enable members to gain life-long friendships and experiences that promote independence and self-sufficiency. 2nd Story is open daily, except Sunday. It receives no state or federal funding and, therefore, relies solely on contributions and fundraising projects for financial support. This organization holds an important role in the Minot community in working to improve the livelihood of individuals with developmental disabilities, and KMSU feels 2nd Story will benefit from their support this year.
"We feel that we made a good decision after meeting with 2nd Story," said Mary Christian, KMSU Auction co-coordinator, "Our class felt an emotional connection with the staff and its members."
To make the auction goals possible this year, the group is seeking both non-profit and business donations.
If individuals or businesses are interested in making a contribution or if there are any questions regarding support for 2nd Story, contact Quita Hines, KMSU Auction co-coordinator at (701)471-6090 or visit the auctionís website at www.minotstateu.edu/auction.
