Event Details

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 8, 2012 from 5:30–8:00 p.m.

Watch for the announcement of our MCs and the full list of Harriet Brewing beers, Peace Coffee coffees, and JOIA sodas available at the event.
