2019 Fall Restoring Hope Complimentary Luncheon
October 24, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Join us at our fall celebration of Small Sums’ work. This one-hour complimentary luncheon will inform, inspire, and raise funds for the practical and powerful assistance that Small Sums provides for hundreds of people, here in the Twin Cities, who are experiencing homelessness and have the chance to return to work….with our help!
Come solo (or bring a guest) and we’ll put you at a table of interesting folks, or invite 3-7 others, who we can introduce to Small Sums, and we’ll have a special table for you. Our lunch is sponsored by SFM.

The Midpointe Event Center is easy to get to and has plenty of free parking! (It’s right next to the new soccer stadium off I94 and Snelling.)
Our special Guest Speaker this year is Lt. Gov. Peggy Flanagan!
Peggy Flanagan is Minnesota’s 50th Lieutenant Governor. The principle of Peggy’s career is giving back, particularly to children, families, communities of color, American Indians, and low-income and working people. Peggy moved to St. Louis Park as a baby with her mom, because her mom rightly saw that the community offered her daughter the opportunity to get a great public education, to be part of a caring community, and to thrive. With these roots, she grew up to become a State Representative representing St. Louis Park and surrounding communities, a noted community organizer, and the executive director of the Children’s Defense Fund-Minnesota.
Peggy is a powerful advocate for the power and effectiveness of helping people with opportunities and resources to overcome obstacles and thrive. She is a dynamic inspirational speaker; both her life and her lifelong work are an inspiration.
If you cannot make it, we hope you’ll consider making a donation to Small Sums. We could not do this work without your support.
