Victory Over Violence Gala & Auction

March 23 @ 5:30 pm - 9:30 pm


Victory Over Violence, presented by Gundersen Health System, is a community coming together to help end domestic violence, sexual assault, and human trafficking. Victory Over Violence is many things–including New Horizons’ largest fundraiser of the year!

Dave Skogen, Chairman of Festival Foods and advocate of Servant Leadership will be the keynote speaker. In addition to running a successful chain of grocery stores, Skogen and his wife, Barbara have been instrumental supporters in many community projects. Everything they do is rooted in the concept of Servant Leadership. Skogen believes we are created to serve others in all that we do. He follows the philosophy that in order to be a leader, one must first be a servant to others. You don’t want to miss his inspiring talk at this year’s Victory Over Violence Gala and Auction.

Additionally, we will have some incredible items up for bid on our live auction! All of which come with Certificates of Authenticity.
