Thank you to all who joined us at the 5th annual Life Saver River Cruise on Wednesday, August 14, 2019! Over 200 guests enjoyed boat cruises along the river, cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, live music, and a whole lot of fun in the spirit of protecting our community’s children.

Hundreds of pinwheels were placed around the St. Norbert Marina for the evening, each one representing an abused or neglected child helped at Willow Tree Cornerstone Child Advocacy Center in 2019. This was a visual reminder of why everyone was gathered.

Proceeds from the event will protect, heal, and care for the children and families served at Willow Tree.
