The Martini Masquerade was established in 2013 as a unique fundraiser to benefit Companion for Children - Youth Mentoring. Companions for Children - Youth Mentoring is a local non-profit 501(c)(3) that has served Minot, ND, and its surrounding area since 1972. In its 45-year history, Companions has provided hundreds of children with screened adult mentors who volunteer their time, knowledge and money to get to know their mentees. Mentors often go above and beyond their responsibility as volunteers, and help their mentees learn new hobbies and skills, while providing friendship that can last a lifetime. Mentors often participate in school events and classroom activities, spend holidays together, and have even had their mentees participate in their weddings!
Funding from events such as the Martini Masquerade allows Companions for Children - Youth Mentoring to continue serving children who are in need of an additional role-model in their life. Your donation, sponsorship, financial contribution and/or participation is the key to making this event a success!
