Heart to Heartland House Draws Media One Exec, Heartland House Advocates

by Bill Zortman

  It's the 2nd Annual Event --- and Thursday's Heart to Heartland House at the new Hilton Garden Inn Downtown has captured my heart.

  I've had the chance to work with the Inter-Lakes Community Action Partnership for this February event that brings together desserts and people wanting to help those at Heartland House.

It's a simple mix that needs community support. In addition to the best of the Sioux Empire desserts -- I'll help present the Sargent Shriver Achievement Award recognizing and honoring an individual who, with the assistance of a Community Action Agency -- have changed their lives achieved independence. It's just the 2nd time it will be given in Minnehaha County.

  If you would like to attend the event --- visit the ICAP Website. Tickets are still available -- and you'll be able bid on roughly 3 dozen desserts made by the areas leading restaurants.

  On our It's YOUR Business Show Bonnie Duffy the Event Chair and Tammie Denning--Director of Heartland House -- were joined by John Fixsdal from Media One. Media One is providing the media video of the Sargent Shriver Award winners will be shown for the first time at the 2nd Annual Dessert Auction Friday night.

   Fixsdal was touched by the story of the family selected and said that the community should realize that this isn't a hands down -- it's a hands-up.
