We are concerned about everyone’s health because of the Covid19 outbreak and have decided to CANCEL our annual fundraiser event scheduled for this Saturday, April 4th, 2020.  It is our number one priority to keep people safe and follow the guidelines set by our leaders.  The recent notice restricts public gatherings to less than 10 people and the closing of bars and restaurants indicate it is best to reduce the impacts by canceling food orders and notifying volunteers.

I want to extend my deepest gratitude to all of you for your continued support and I hope that you will all be able to attend next year.   I am sorry for any inconvenience and I thank you for your understanding.  You may get a refund for dinner tickets bought in advance or we can trade them for raffle tickets.

If you have questions or concerns please feel free to message me.

Thanks again and God bless you all during this uncertain time.  Stay healthy!

The Raffle WILL NOT be held April 4th but we will have our raffle drawing 3-4 weeks after MN Governor gives us the all clear and after VFW 428 reopens. Watch for the new date here.

 If we sell all our tickets the chances of winning are 1 in 200. 

Tickets are still available and may be purchase by check or via Debit Card by calling 320-267-5481
