Achieve Services has Successful Spring Gala, and Recognizes Natalie Steffen

On Thursday, April 18st, 2024 Achieve Services held its annual spring gala at Bunker Hills Event Center in Coon Rapids, MN and it was a huge success. The event sold out with about 300 guests in attendance who participated in a silent auction, live auction, raffles, and a fund-a-need drive.

The crowd was entertained by the father-son duo of John and Miles LeTourneau, who emceed the event.  Miles attends Achieve, and John serves on its Board of Directors.  Funds raised at the event will be used to expand opportunities for adults with disabilities to engage in life-enriching activities in the community as well as on-site at Achieve’s facility in Blaine.

During the event’s program, Emeritus Board Member, Natalie Steffen, was recognized for her many years of service to Achieve. Natalie served on the Anoka County Board back when Achieve Services was part of Anoka County. In 2004, Achieve spun off from the county and became an independent nonprofit organization. Natalie was instrumental in helping Achieve navigate this complex transition.

Natalie served as an Achieve board member for the next 20 years, and just stepped down at the end of last year. “Natalie has been a tremendous advocate for Achieve, and for the people with disabilities who we are privileged to serve.  We are extremely grateful for her many years of dedicated service.  Natalies will always occupy a special place in our hearts” says Tom Weaver, CEO of Achieve Services.
