I would be so remiss if I didn’t thank all of our friends and clients for showing up to The Great Pumpkin Giveaway that we held last month at Lakeside Commons Park in Blaine.
We had well over 3,000 people in attendance and, since we donated $1.00 for every pumpkin given away, we ended up donating about $2,000 to Stepping Stone Emergency Housing. And we have YOU to thank for this.
Stepping Stone is special to Team Lindahl so we try to organize events as often as possible that will directly benefit the organization. In case you aren’t familiar with them, Stepping Stone is the only adult homeless shelter in Anoka County.
It provides a temporary roof over the heads of about 60 men and women. They call the folks that stay with them “guests,” but have high expectations for them to be accountable for their lives.
Today is Stepping Stone’s Give to the Max Day and every penny counts. You can donate to the organization through Pay Pal if that’s easier for you.
Anyway, I not only want to thank our friends, clients and potential clients for turning out but our generous local businesses that donated the support, music, food and refreshment for the event.
So, huge thanks go to:
- Rainbow Yo Frozen Yogurt, at 10950 Club West Parkway in Blaine, 2014 winner of the Best Yogurt.
- The world’s best loan guy, Nate Raich of Pacific Union (my co-sponsor).
- The NHL’s amazing Minnesota Wild.
- Tim Mahoney, our favorite local musician.
Sorry for all the links in this post but it’s only right that these folks get the recognition they deserve.
Keep watching our Facebook page for more fun stuff coming up from Team Lindahl. And again, from the bottom of my heart, thank you!
