Reiten $400K Check Presentation-092915-Hostfest-Minot, ND-FinalFinal-100515-Text 180 JPEG
The family of Chester and Joy Reiten presented the Høstfest-Heritage Foundation a check for $400,000 during the 2015 Norsk Høstfest Opening Ceremony celebration. Funding for the gift was provided through a charitable remainder trust established by Chet and Joy several years ago. With the passing of Joy earlier this year the remaining assets of the trust transferred to the Foundation in support of Norsk Høstfest in the years to come.

Accepting the gift are Foundation President Dennis Helgeson and Vice-President/Secretary Karen Krebsbach.
