Minnesota nonprofit The S.H.E.E. Foundation, which stands for “Sisters Healing, Evolving and Empowered,” held its second-annual fundraiser gala Saturday night.

The 70’s themed party took place at the Edinburgh USA Golf Course.

The organization supports women by teaching them life skills, including resume-building and cooking. It brings together women who have encountered the justice system as well as those without a criminal background.

In a previous interview, founder LaToya Wilson told 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS, “They inspire each other. […] They feed off each other in a positive way.”

The first group of women began meeting over the summer.
