This Past Friday evening, members of the EnerChange team were able to attend the Annual Gala for Common Bond Communities held at the River Center in St. Paul.
If you follow our social media profiles on Twitter or Facebook, you will see that Common Bond has been a very active participant in the EnerChange program. Over the past few months we have been sharing a few of the projects we have been doing with Common Bond Communities and giving our followers an “over the shoulder” view of how EnerChange conducts energy audits and facility walk-throughs for nonprofits that participate in our free program.
This past Friday night was our opportunity to show our appreciation of Common Bond’s participation in the EnerChange program and for being a very active client nonprofit in the Twin Cities by sponsoring and attending the annual spectacular know as the Common Bonds Gala.

This year’s event was a great success. More than 850 supporters and friends of Common Bond Communities turned out for this event. The night kicked off with a reception and large silent auction. Then the crowd moved into the main ballroom to listen speakers and continue with other fundraising events. Over the course of the evening, more than $500,050 was raised to support the fantastic programs at Common Bond Communities.
EnerChange is proud of the efforts and successes by all of our client nonprofits and we were happy to be a sponsor of this annual gala event. We’re already looking forward to next year’s event.
