Lake Street Wine and Beer Tasting and Silent Auction
Thursday, November 17, 2011 from 5:30 PM to 8:00 PM (CST)
Minneapolis, United States
Tickets still available at the door at full price.
We accept cash, check, Visa, and Mastercard.
This is Lake Street Council's ONLY fundraiser of the year. The money raised here ensures we can continue our work renewing and strengthening the business community on the Lake Street Corridor and Twin Cities at large.
Lucky for you, we've made supporting Lake Street Council a ton of fun—sample fine wines, local brews, and authentic Mexican food while bidding on silent auction items donated by many of the people and businesses that make Lake Street great. You can even dance a little if you want. We encourage that.
Join us at El Nuevo Rodeo (3003 27th Ave S) on November 17 from 5:30–8 p.m.
Meet the MC's:
Dipankar Mukherjee, Artistic Director, Pangea World Theater
Robert Lilligren, City Council Representative—Ward 6
Gary Schiff, City Council Representative—Ward 9
Andrea Jenkins, City Council Policy Aide—Ward 8
