SFM Foundation to host two fall fundraising events
This fall brings two opportunities to support the SFM Foundation with events in Minnesota and Iowa.
Annual fall event returns
The Foundation’s annual Fall Fundraising Event is scheduled for 6-9 p.m. on Thursday, November 9, at The Westin Edina Galleria in Edina, Minnesota, near SFM’s Bloomington headquarters. The in-person event will feature wine, craft beer and cider tasting, a silent auction, raffles and complimentary appetizers. Tickets are $40 in advance and $50 at the door. The online silent auction will run from November 6-9. If you are unable to attend the live event you can still bid on items through the online bidding platform. If you’re interested in making a bigger impact, sponsorships are available at multiple giving levels and donations are also being accepted for the silent auction.
New Iowa event planned
A new event is making its debut this year in Iowa. The Bowling for Scholarships fundraiser is set for 5-9 p.m. on Thursday, November 2, at Spare Time Entertainment in West Des Moines, Iowa. Join the Foundation for an evening of bowling and live music by The Juan & Only. There are multiple ways to participate:
- Register as a Team Sponsor for $500 and your team of four will receive two hours of bowling, shoes, pizza and refreshments. Team themes and costumes are encouraged. Prizes will be awarded for best team theme and highest team score.
- If you’re interested in supporting the event without bowling, register to be a Lane Sponsor for $300 and you’ll have your logo displayed electronically at one of the 14 lanes.
- Register as a Social Attendee for $50 if you prefer to hang out, watch the bowlers, listen to the live music, and enjoy two complimentary refreshments.
Proceeds from both fall events will support multi-year scholarships for students affected by workplace injuries.
