Bowls for Hope

Bowls for Hope

Over the past ten years, many gracious people have come together to make the Bowls for Hope event successful. To date, Bowls for Hope events have provided over $60,500 in support for the important work of a wide range of worthy charities throughout the St. Croix Valley. This has only been possible because of the commitment and contributions of many members of the community, including you. Thank you! 

Members of the Bowls for Hope Committee have taken time over the past few weeks to discuss the future of the event. We have decided to not hold the event in 2020 and, instead, devote time to reimagining and developing an event for 2021 that would be fresh and unique. We don’t know what this will look like yet, but we are excited to think about new ways to support our communities.


We remain extraordinarily grateful for your past support of Bowls for Hope and look forward to envisioning new ways that the university and community can collaborate to support the St. Croix Valley.

With sincere gratitude,

Mary Van Galen and the Bowls for Hope Committee
