MANKATO, Minn. (KEYC) — The public has until Monday, Nov. 16, to purchase tickets for the Greater Mankato Area United Way’s Fire & Ice event.

This year, amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the annual fundraiser is virtual. What normally would be a black-tie gala, this year’s event features two event packages available for purchase for a night in.

One pack is for a small gathering of close friends and family, while the other designed for a date night.

“We are really promoting our date night program and that is where you get a virtual event package that you pick up from the United Way and you can celebrate, 'Fire and Ice from home,” explained Event Co-Chair Marissa Brostrom.

“With the pandemic, it being the most critical year, it’s more crucial than ever that we recognize support that Untied Way does for the community and it’s just a way for the community to get involved and give back,” said Event Co-Chair Rachael Moldan.

All proceeds benefit the 56 programs in the four-county area United Way supports.

The event takes place Dec. 5.
