MANKATO, Minn. (KEYC) - Greater Mankato Area United Way expects record turnout for their upcoming annual Fire and Ice Gala taking place this weekend.

Presented by PrimeSource Funding, this year’s Fire & Ice theme is Vintage Hollywood Glamour. The event features a seated dinner, entertainment, silent and live auctions, a live band, specialty food and drink, games and other activities.
