There is an extra day in February this year, and several area organizations, including Heartland Family Services, are using that day to spread extra love in the metro. This annual event will be chaired by Susan Pedersen, with honorary chairs being Polly and Jack Struyk. Individual tickets are $150 each, and the proceeds go to HFS’ programs that help vulnerable individuals, children, and families in the community.
