Helpline Center Events
Each year the Helpline Center hosts several signature events. We hope you'll join us at one of our events as we bring our community together to build awareness and support of our programs. If you'd like to learn more about our events and how to get involved, contact us by calling 211.
As our communities and state continue to experience the loss of our family and friends to suicide, the Step Forward to Prevent Suicide event promotes hope and healing and raises awareness and support for the Helpline Center's local suicide prevention and survivor support programs. 100% of the proceeds stay local!
Participants have the opportunity to hear from an honorary speaker, listen while loved ones names are read aloud during the remembrance ceremony, and participate in a 1.5 mile walk. We encourage people to put together a team or register as an individual as we continue to step forward to prevent suicide and support those bereaved by loss.
Upcoming Step Forward event:
Saturday, August 7, 2021
Riverside Park Amphitheater, Yankton, SD
Registration & Thrivent Pancake Feed: 8:15 a.m.
Honorary Speaker & Remembrance Ceremony: 9:30 a.m.
If you are interested in getting involved in the support of this event, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Helpline Open golf tournament and online auction raises funds for suicide prevention and aftercare programs offered through the Helpline Center. The four-person scramble tournament takes place each summer in Sioux Falls. 100% of the proceeds stay local. If you're interested in getting involved or becoming a sponsor, please contact us at email@example.com.
Thank you to everyone who participated and supported the 2021 event. We hope you'll join us again in 2022.
The Spirit of Volunteerism Awards are held each spring in Sioux Falls and Rapid City. The Helpline Center Volunteer Connections programs seek nominations from our community in the following categories: youth, adult, group and corporate humanitarian. Nominations are then reviewed by a panel of community leaders and winners are announced at the event. The Spirit of Volunteerism awards have been recognizing the exemplary efforts of volunteers for more than 35 years.
The Helpline Center exists to connect community members to community resources in a purposeful and impactful way. And, you're a part of our community - so we need your help. Meaningful Moments is an auction - but it's more than that. This is our fundraising event to connect our community in the Black Hills in more ways - through business and personal donations and business and personal auction bids. Whether you are just wanting to browse and bid online, or can attend the Meaningful Moments Beer & Bingo event at Miner Brewing Company, you have ways to make an impact while purchasing events, adventures, experiences and more in a meaningful way. If you're interested in getting involved or being a sponsor, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
