A Christmas by the Lake proceeds will benefit two organizations, the Northern Lights Foundation and Flood Homes with Hope. Northern Lights helps regional children who have life-threatening illnesses and was founded several years ago by Duluth dentist Dr. Ken Larson. Flood Homes with Hope has been added this year due to the enormous need for help after last June’s devasting floods. Flood Homes with Hope is the regional long-term flood recovery effort that is ongoing to help flood victims.
