The annual Cocktails at the Governor’s event will be held on Friday, May 3, 2013 from 4:30 to 7 pm at the John Lind House, 622 Center Street, New Ulm.

The event includes a Dinner for 10 Drawing with proceeds benefitting the Association’s programming to increase awareness of its mission and scope. Tickets for the drawing are $2, winner need not be present to win. Cost for the event is $20 which includes appetizers and a beverage.
