To the Editor

The sold-out King’s Woods Dinner at the Hormel Historic Home on Saturday night was a wonderful evening of great music and delicious food. This fundraiser benefited two local non-profits, The Hormel Historic Home and Gerard Academy.

Guests entered the Hormel Home to the wonderful piano music of Dan Ulland. Supporters enjoyed a fabulous filet mignon meal prepared by Chef Wade Kolander. We are grateful to members of the Austin High School National Honor Society for helping to serve the meal. During dinner Reminisce provided more music, which enticed dancers to the floor following the meal.
