Press Release: December 6, 2017.
The Minnetonka Rotary is pleased to announce that their fundraising event “Links & Libations” held on September 14, 2017 at The Glen Lake Golf Course was a successful event in the fact that it raised $31,607 for the Minnetonka Rotary Foundation to disburse into the communities of Hopkins / Minnetonka. Chris Carr went on to say, “The team we put together was extremely dedicated. We sold more raffle tickets, more sponsors participated, more silent auction items were provided, which shows that the community was behind us helping us to raise these funds. I am happy to say that our club members kept their focus and did an outstanding job by contributing their skills and time to achieve this result which exceeded our fundraising efforts of 2016. The team is responsible for our success. We also owe a special thanks to our sponsors and the many generous contributors.”
