The Upper Midwest Chapter is pleased to provide online tools for DIY (do it yourself) fundraisers and share information about upcoming fundraising events offered by other people and organizations benefiting the National MS Society. However, the chapter does not sponsor these events and has had no role in developing content.
Introducing DIY fundraising tools
Do It Yourself Fundraising is an opportunity for people with a deep commitment to the MS cause to raise awareness and critical funds for the MS Movement in new and creative ways. From golf and baseball tournaments to galas and motorcycle runs, people in the Upper Midwest Chapter area are commited to fighting MS NOW!
Click here to visit the DIY website. You can search for a DIY event to join or support, or start your own DIY fundraising event today!
For more information on DIY fundraising or how to use the online tool, contact 800-582-5296 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

St. Cloud, Minnesota
LaTable is an annual luncheon to benefit the National MS Society, Upper Midwest Chapter. This festive and very popular event is the brainchild of St. Cloud’s own Holly Benson–Suess, who lives with MS.
LaTable consists of approximately 30 to 40 themed tables seating 6 to 24 people each. Hostesses invite guests to fill their tables. Themes are unique each year and are incredibly creative and entertaining. All are fabulous and well worth the ticket price! (FYI: Some hostesses ask their guests to dress to complement a table theme or color!) There is an opportunity to view the tables the night before at our Evening Preview, “LaTaste.”
