Sieda Sneaker Soirée April 21, 2023

Ottumwa, Iowa, April 12, 2023– Sieda Community Action will be holding their annual banquet and silent auction, the Sieda Sneaker Soirée, on Friday, April 21 at the Bridgeview Center in Ottumwa. The event is an opportunity to celebrate the great work Sieda does throughout Southeast Iowa and is the organization’s largest fundraiser of the year.

This is the first year Sieda’s banquet will be a Sneaker Soirée. Guests at the event are invited to wear their favorite tennis shoes along with whatever they’d normally wear to the banquet. “We just thought this would be a fun way for people to get dressed up a bit, but also feel less formal or stuffy.” said Tammy Hotek, the Deputy Director at Sieda Community Action.

“For the past decade, it has been my pleasure to be the Executive Director of Sieda Community Action. I know this organization and our amazing staff work tirelessly to address the causes and conditions of poverty and have a lasting impact on our community. We and our Presenting Sponsor, South Ottumwa Savings Bank, hope folks from all over our service area will dig out their favorite sneakers, tennis shoes, skaters, or casual shoes and help Sieda raise money to change the lives of low-income families.” said Brian Dunn, Sieda’s Executive Director.
