Western Ave. Donors will be entered into a drawing to win a $250 Visa gift card.

Northwestern Mutual

Northwestern Mutual hosted a toy drive in October for the Simon Says: Live a Better Life Foundation. The toys will be donated to Ronald McDonald House Charities of South Dakota. The staff learned about Simon Says from Lily Jones, a Dakota Wesleyan University student who received a Northwestern Mutual scholarship.

Northwestern Mutual and the Sioux Falls Morning Optimist Club hosted the 11th annual Camp Bring It On golf tournament and auction in September. The event raised $16,000 for the region’s only residential camp for kids with cancer and cancer survivors. Cherry Creek Grill helped sponsor the event, providing all the food. Northwestern Mutual had more than 20 volunteers and golfers at this year’s event.

Members of the Northwestern Mutual leadership team completed the CKG Foundation’s Speak Up 5K to raise money and awareness for teenage mental health. The foundation aims to end the stigma tied to teenage depression and anxiety. Northwestern Mutual had runners in all 50 states.
