GIVING BACK | Tradition Pass It On
Our Tradition Pass It On initiative has gained traction in the Edina community in 2018 and kept us busy. We are thrilled to have the opportunity to be part of amazing local events and organizations.
We kicked off the new year with Quinn’s Cup 5th Annual Pond Hockey Tournament. This event honors and celebrates a young boy named Quinn who suffered from Myocarditis. Quinn’s Cup has raised over $95,000 for the Myocarditis Foundation!
In February, we sponsored the Hendrickson Foundation National Hockey Festival. This foundation makes sure that no hockey player has a barrier between them and the sport they love while facing disabilities or challenges.
Firefighters for Healing
Our spotlight in March recognized Firefighters for Healing. Their mission is to provide support to children, burn victims and survivors in victims and survivors in ways that insurance companies can’t. Their vision for 2020 is to build a state-of-the-art Transitional Care Facility for patients, their families and firefighters to call a temporary home. JOIN US for their Red Tie Gala fundraiser on October 13, 2018.
United Heroes League
In July, we are excited to honor The United Heroes League with a Military Appreciation Night at Braemar Arena in Edina during Da Beauty League. The United Heroes League empowers military families to stay healthy and active by battling the financial burden associated with sports.
Edina Community Foundation
We are proud and looking forward to our continued partnership with the Edina Community Foundation. Incorporated in 1977, the foundation has been creating programs to serve, strengthen, and celebrate the Edina community.
