An Annual Community Celebration and Fundraiser in Support of Wilder's Mission
Join us for a magical evening on Thursday, May 4, 2023, at Wilder Center in Saint Paul!
Ordinary Magic is our annual fundraiser in support of the families that Wilder serves. Together we will celebrate the resilience and accomplishments of people in our community and take part in creating a stronger, more vibrant Saint Paul.
I was happy that I didn't have to deal with living with somebody else, I wasn't experiencing homelessness anymore. CDA and Wilder were both very accommodating to me. They gave me an opportunity that I never got from anyone else, and I can honestly say that they saved my life.
