Fed Up North Iowa to hold benefit June 16th

BELMOND – The Fed Up North Iowa group is planning a benefit for June 16th from 8:30 PM until 2 AM at the Corner Lounge in Belmond.

The benefit is being held in order to raise funds for a new activity center for area youth.

According to the Facebook event page for the benefit, “Belmond Corner lounge is hosting a benefit for Fed Up! We will be having a DJ, raffle prizes and awesome drink specials including Rainbow color changing shots, Jello shot filled fruit, and Apple Pie shots!”

According to group President Tara Mikkelsen (pictured), the benefit sponsors are Harley Davidson of Mason City, Cattleman’s Steak & Provisions, Fareway of Belmond, The Computer Guy (five $10.00 gift cards) and others.

Mikkelsen is the only remaining original leader of the group, after a rocky beginning over the last several weeks.

Her focus is now on bringing a youth center to the town of Belmond, where she lives, but noted that she wants her organization to help other North Iowa communities as well.  She says Belmond offers little for the youth there to do, and a youth center would keep kids busy and out of trouble while giving them a fun, safe place to congregate. The youth center might offer lazer tag, basketball, games, pool, etc.

“We have a location in mind.  We also have interested donors that may help us get this going,” Mikkelsen said.
