On February 16th, over 482 people braved a very cold winter evening for the 9th AnnualMinnetonka Diamond Club Fund Raising Event at Maynard's. THROUGH YOUR KIND GENEROSITY, WE RAISED $ 12,164!
These funds go directly to supporting the Minnetonka Baseball, Football, and Softball Fields and our kids who use these athletic fields. As you may be aware, these fields are not yet paid for so every dollar donated helps us reach our goal of paying off the remaining $1.3 million dollar balance. This was the largest contribution ever! To this, we say, THANK YOU!
Additionally, we want to thank all who helped promote the event. I want to thank Clear Channel Out Door Billboards and six radio and TV stations, team members who sent emails, community businesses for displaying posters, the Baseball, Football, and Softball Teams on-line registration e-mails, the Minnetonka schools organizational web sites and the local banks who displayed our promotional signage.
Our thanks also go out to the members of the Minnetonka Girls Softball, Baseball, and Football, and DECA teams who graciously greeted you upon your arrival and you for your generous purchase of raffle tickets for the donated Minnetonka apparel. A special thanks also goes out to the Minnetonka Community singers, guitar players, keyboard player and barbershop quartet and band who donated their time and talent for the evening’s entertainment.
Finally, this message would not be complete without a big THANK YOU to Maynard's Restaurant for their extraordinary donation of all of the food and drinks all evening and their dedicated staff who made the evening a memorable and successful event. On your next visit to Maynard's, please tell them how grateful you are for their support of the Minnetonka Diamond Club.
