As part of Minnesota's "Give to the Max Day," the public is invited to celebrate area non-profits and the season of giving with a special event at The Grand Event Center from 5 to 9 p.m. tonight. Attendees can learn more about over twenty area non-profit organizations, and enjoy free food and cash bar along with a line-up of entertainment presented by a local magician, the Carleton Juggling F.I.S.H. Club, the St. Olaf College Swing Dance Club, and dancing to the sounds of Matt Arthur & The Bratlanders (recently voted Southern Minnesota's 'best bar band' by Southern MN 'Scene' magazine). The event is open to all ages and admission is free with a Give to the Max Day donation of $10 or more to the organization of your choice.
As a special bonus, donations at the event could also win your favorite local non-profit or school a “Golden Ticket” as the Northfield Area Foundation is sponsoring two $500 “Golden Tickets” and Carleton College is sponsoring two $250 Golden Tickets.
The Grand Event Center is located at 316 Washington Street South in Northfield.
