2015 Saint Nicholas Annual Dinner


2015 Saint Nicholas Annual Dinner

December 3, 2015 Marriott City Center, Minneapolis

The Saint Nicholas Dinner celebrates the spirit of caring and generosity illustrated in the life of Saint Nicholas, the fourth century bishop known for his kindness, compassion and great love for children.

The support and generosity of our sponsors makes this event possible. The event brings together business leaders, elected officials, and special friends across the Greater Minneapolis-St. Paul region to recognize the work that is being done to eliminate poverty and create a stronger community. This annual holiday event draws more than 700 guests and benefits the children, families and individuals that Catholic Charities serves.

We are excited to announce Archie Black, President and CEO of SPS Commerce as our 2015 Saint Nicholas Dinner keynote speaker. Archie is one of the pioneers of cloud computing, and has grown SPS Commerce from a groundbreaking idea into the largest retail cloud service.

Archie, along with his wife Jane McDonald Black and their children are active volunteers and supporters of Catholic Charities. We are thrilled and honored to have him speak at this year’s Saint Nicholas Dinner.
