The night includes live music, delicious food, exciting auctions, and more–this is an event you definitely don’t want to miss.
Kids in the City
Kids in the City 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 is a fun and unique golf tournament benefiting 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.

Hosted at The Capital Grille, this fun event begins with a cocktail reception and silent auction followed by a sit-down dinner served by current and former Minnesota Twins. There is a short program and exciting live auction during the dinner.
