2020, has been a year of uncertainty, change & continuous need for adjustments. Our typical Steak Fry Dinner & Auction is being transformed into “Home Grilled.” Instead of a sit-down dinner, you will be able to pick up fully prepped meal kits along with an experience to bid on auction items & enter in raffle drawings. It has become more clear than ever before that the mission of RiverWorks is essential in our community and we need your support to continue on for the next decade of serving our community.
A huge THANK YOU to everyone that joined us for Home Grilled on October 2nd!
We hope you enjoyed your home grilled steak dinners. 

Exciting news, there are still ways to support RiverWorks through this event!

ONLINE AUCTION - is closed.  Thank you to all who participated!

Typical attendance is 10-20 people.

Holiday Meal Meat Vouchers - $6,900 
Oh the wonderful smell of a Thanksgiving or Christmas meal. We all love it! Help us provide that for families in our community who may not have the funds to provide these special holiday meals to their family.

Lunch Box Express - $11,000 
This would help fund Christmas Express 2020, and Summer LBX 2021. Through this program, children in the Rockford School District receive four meals each week that are delivered by local volunteers directly to their doorstep.  

The need to raise funds through Home Grilled while keeping everyone healthy & safe is our priority. We are taking guidance for safe event from STAY SAFE MN. View Here
