Sustainability Works! Sponsorship Level Update

Updated: Aug 30, 2023

Dear Community Partners,

After a year of positive impact in our region thanks to community support, Sustainable Stillwater MN (SSMN) is hosting its second annual fundraiser, Sustainability Works on Thursday, November 2, 2023 at the JX Center. We invite you to join us in sponsoring this

event to be a part of the solution for a healthier, more resilient community. Our goal is to

find one presenting sponsor and others at varying levels. Please join us and register!

Because of support from our fundraiser last year, Sustainable Stillwater MN hired part-time contract employees to assist our workgroup leaders and volunteers to expand the impact of our many projects. SSMN is still very grassroots, with an eye for empowering our community to make individual, business, and governmental decisions that lower our carbon footprint. We are grateful to announce that our most impactful goal, a climate action plan with the City of Stillwater, is moving forward.

Karla Hult, from Channel 11, will be back to lead us as emcee with her passion and purpose. In the works is also a motivating, educational speaker, along with a local auctioneer. Green Champion Awards will return, and our location will move to the larger JX Center. Silent and live auction items, geared toward nature and sustainability, will be part of our evening as well.

Join us on November 2 with your sponsorship and presence as we learn and grow together as a community, honor those who are true champions in sustainability, and become inspired to “think globally, act locally.”

Rick Heidick, Board Chair; Roger Tomten, Board Vice-Chair; Tiffany Parr, Treasurer; Nancy Lyner, Secretary; Wendy Gorski, Green Business Lead; Buff Grace, Board Member, Clayton Dumcun, Board Member, Kelsey Depew, Communications Specialist; and Ami Voeltz, Program Administrator.
