11th Annual Day of Giving

Posted: Updated:
Saturday was the 11th Annual Daysun's Day of Giving. Started in 2003 by Minot resident Bob Gross, the event is a way to give back to less fortunate families in the community.  


More than 500 bikes and helmets and 1000 backpacks were handed out to youngsters in the Minot Community. Rain forced this year's Daysun's Day of Giving away from Roosevelt Park to the Magic City Harley Davidson shop, but the staff there said they were honored to be a part of the event.

"You know it's very humbling," says event coordinator, Connie Sundby. "All of us are going to be faced with misfortune at someplace and some point in our lives. Been there, done that myself. Whatever form it come in, there's nothing great to feel than someone stepping up and wanting to help you, and that as an individual makes you feel great."

The event was created by Bob Gross, to honor the memory of his nephew Daysun, who was killed in a drunk driving accident.  Gross will also be handing out winter coats to members of the Minot community. The time and date for that event will be released soon.
