Spring Thaw has been around for 5 years and grown exponentially from 200 guests to 600+ in 2016, we are excited to see where the momentum will take us!
Kids in the City
Kids in the was designed to recognize outstanding Boys & Girls Club members who have been identified as “FOX Sports North All Stars.” The All-Stars are identified based on participation and success in one or more of the three priority outcome areas—Academic Success, Good Character & Citizenship, and Healthy Lifestyles. The event consists of a Tailgate Party at Fulton with all you can eat food, followed by a Minnesota Twins game at Target Field!
The Knicker Open was founded by the Minneapolis City of Lakes Rotary Club and benefits the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Twin Cities. Part ‘scramble’ golf event and part ‘fashion show’, the Knicker Open attracts a wide array of individuals, corporate sponsors, and foursomes from across the Twin Cities who gather for a unique event and fun afternoon, while also supporting a great cause.
