Join us as we celebrate the accomplishments of our women, children, and families.

We host several events throughout the year to raise awareness, build community, and help support our programs and services.

Celebrate Hope

In 2019 we celebrated our 65th Anniversary with a special event at the Parkway Theater. The following two years we connected virtually to raise awareness about the unique impact the COVID-19 pandemic has had on our clients.

We’re back!

Thursday, November 10, 4-7 p.m.

Music Box Theatre

We are thrilled to be back in person at the Music Box Theatre for an evening of entertainment and art celebrating the hope of recovery! Don’t miss a performance by Emmy award-winning comedian Sheletta Brundidge, original music from all-female Twin Cities Americana band The Foxgloves, and more!


For the past 18 years, our annual fundraising breakfast has gathered more than 250 business professionals, donors, and alumnae annually to celebrate the success of Wayside women and families. Watch the full Empower Me Breakfast 2022 virtual event.

Alumnae Banquet

Since 1992 our alumnae have gathered for a banquet in celebration of their continued sobriety and common bond. Make a donation to help make this memorable experience possible year after year.

Community Building

Wayside’s Community Building events empower the community with access to educational opportunities like Naloxone administration and virtual mindfulness exercises. Sign up for our newsletter to find out about future events.
