Holly Ball 2020 is this weekend. I've been lucky enough to have the opportunity to attend in the past, and it amazes me that you can take a big empty space and fill it with ice sculptures, food, music, and waterfalls in less than 24 hours. The other thing that amazes me, is how much we can do to help people in need when we all come together for a great cause.

So last night, I signed up for a Sparkle Bag from JF Kruse Jewelers in St. Cloud. It was super simple. I went to the Centracare.com website, clicked on the Holly Ball link, and clicked "sign up" for a Sparkle bag.

Each bag is $50 and you can buy as many as you want. I went inside to JF Kruse Jewelers at 6:30pm, my assigned time, and reached into a box full of ring pops. I pulled one out with a number that matched a jewelry bag that was in the back of the store.

They brought me the bag, and of course I couldn't wait to open it. The gift could be valued anywhere from $50 up to the grand prize of $5000 in value!

I received this beautiful necklace. I feel like it was just for me. I love black and white stones together. The necklace was a value of $100. I also received a coupon for $50 off of any purchase I make in the their store of $250, on top of their incredible Christmas deals!

I hope you remember Holly Ball 2020 this year, and do what you can to support these amazing programs that we have for people in need in central Minnesota.

Happy Holly Ball 2020!
