finalforweb.jpgMINNEAPOLIS, MN—North Star Team Member Jenna Blass coordinated a “Casual for a Cause” Jeans Day and Potluck at the Minneapolis Headquarters on Friday, September 11th. All donations from the day went towards fundraising for the Alzheimer’s Association’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s, which Blass will be participating in on September 26th. As a result of support from friends, family and North Star, Blass has been named a Champion Fundraiser for the last 3 years in a row.

North Star Team Members and Advisors in Minneapolis donated $5.00 to wear jeans for the day and attend the potluck. While donations from the day came to a total of $977, with a 100% matching gift donation from the Scott Richards North Star Charitable Foundation, the grand total came to $1,954!

This event was one of several “Casual for a Cause” days held throughout the year and hosted by North Star’s Events Planning Committee, of which Blass is a part of. Such events have made it easy for the North Star team to give back as a group and participate in efforts to benefit awareness and fundraising for causes such as Alzheimer’s Disease, Ataxia, Breast Cancer, Myelofibrosis and more.
