about our non-profit partners
Each year we partner with 4 non-profits to make Sertoma Winter Wonderland a reality for our community. Each of these partners volunteers their time and services all the way from set up to tear down each year and are rewarded by receiving an even split of the proceeds back to their organization.
Relationship safety alliance
(formerly Mid-Minnesota Women's Center)
We are excited to share that Mid-Minnesota Women’s Center is now Relationship Safety Alliance! We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization led by a volunteer board and an amazing staff. Our mission is to save lives by supporting the journey to well-being and empowerment of all people exposed to relationship abuse. Sometimes there is a cloud that comes over our lives. It shadows us and we can’t seem to find a place of warmth, safety, and support. We need shelter from the torrent—help to brave the storm. The Relationship Safety Alliance is the umbrella that covers you. RSA is an alliance of services joining together to help you safely through your journey. The Louise Seliski Shelter provides housing for those in emergency need. The Alex & Brandon Child Safety Center facilitates supervised visitations and safe exchanges among families. Support Groups, Outreach & Education serve as resources that can transform our communities into healthy places where abuse is not tolerated. Simple descriptions of life-saving endeavors. RSA safeguards those whose storm has not yet cleared. The journey is yours, but we intend to hold the umbrella for you as the skies begin to brighten.

confidence learning center
Confidence Learning Center is a non-profit organization located on beautiful Sylvan Lake providing year-round outdoor recreation and educational experiences for people of all ages with cognitive and developmental disabilities. Confidence Learning Center is in its 52nd year of serving families, group homes, schools, and promoting self-confidence and self-esteem within our Campers. It is because of service clubs like the Sertoma Club, and events like Sertoma Winter Wonderland, that we can keep our mission alive. Thank you for supporting Confidence Learning Center and Sertoma Winter Wonderland!

The Northland Arboretum has been a staple in the Brainerd Lakes Area for nearly 50 years. As a nature-focused non-profit, we aim to provide the community with opportunities for recreation, conservation, and education with the goal of contributing to the overall health of individuals and families. We provide classes and workshops to the community, local schools, and local organizations. We are passionate advocates for developing strong connections between people, nature, and each other. With almost 500 acres and a 12-mile trail system, The Arb is a magical, year-round destination for many people outside the Lakes Area. During the warm weather months, hike our trails and wander our many volunteer-run gardens. In the winter, our hiking trails convert into some of the most well-groomed, intermediate cross-country ski trails in the area! You can support the Northland Arboretum by becoming a member or donating to our mission. Visit our website for more details on our work and how to get involved: www.northlandarb.org. Thank you for your support!
