Duluth, Min -

The human development center hosted their annual gala tonight. The Greysolon ballroom set the mood for supporters to bid on some immaculate items during the silent auction.

According to Mike Ceynowa, HDC Board Member, The HDC depends on funds raised tonight to help support the numerous services they provide.

 "it's hugely important you know, it not only helps raise funds for the HDC and our programs but it also helps get the word out about the services the HDC offers in our community."

 The event brought in over 70,000 dollars last year. Proceeds from this year’s event support their mission of providing integrated, culturally respectful mental health and addiction services that foster hope, self–determination, and recovery.
