Dining Around Douglas raises funds for YMCA Strong Kids Campaign

The 5th annual Dining Around Douglas will be held on Sunday, April 22 at the Holiday Inn in Alexandria from 5 to 8 p.m.

Dining Around Douglas is an event that supports the Alexandria Area YMCA Strong Kids Campaign. Area restaurants will provide a sample of their signature dishes for some of the finest food in Douglas County.

The YMCA will auction off gift certificates, weekend getaways, season tickets and more. Proceeds from the event support the YMCA Strong Kids Campaign, a scholarship fund that provides membership and program subsidy for kids and families that may not otherwise be able to afford a YMCA experience.

Tickets to the event are $35 per ticket, or $280 for a table of eight. Tickets can be purchased at the YMCA and Alexandria Bremer Bank locations.

Last year, Dining Around Douglas raised more than $12,000 for the scholarship fund.
