Franklin Field BBQ


June 25-- from 10am-2pm we hosted our 1st ever event! We linked with the Minneapolis Public School District to rent Franklin Field (North Minneapolis) and played pick up soccer from 10-11:30am. It was a windy, humid, 94°F day but 20 of us came out to play. From 11:30-2pm we grilled out in the backyard at 1502A Dupont Ave N (Caleb's). There were brats, cheeseburgers, coleslaw, cold beer & homemade strawberry banana ice cream. We watched Wales vs. Ireland play in the Euros Round of 16 (Wales won on an own goal). At 1pm we announced our raffle winners who took home Fair State Brewery growlers, Futsal Society gear, Underground Meats (Madison, WI) summer sausage, MN United FC supporters scarf & 4 tickets to a MN United FC game. Despite the heat everyone had a great time and we managed to raise $875! We reached our goal and are able to buy 50 sets of backpacks & school supplies for Anwatin Middle School's Beacons Program. Thanks to everyone who came out & donated!
