Join fellow IIDA Northland members at this exclusive holiday event. Attendees will learn the art of gift wrapping, while indulging in holiday-inspired hors d’oeuvres and beverages.

Please bring up to two gifts you would like to wrap for your personal use.

In the spirit of the giving season, we have also partnered with the University of MN Masonic Children’s Hospital and will be donating gifts to the NICU and to families who will unfortunately be spending the holidays in the NICU. If you wish to donate, please choose from the list of items below. We will be wrapping these items together at Studio 125 and the Forums Committee will be distributing them to the University of MN Masonic Children’s Hospital. If gifts are unable to be wrapped due to the shape or size, we will donate unwrapped items. All items will be given out by the social workers in the NICU as they are needed by the families.
