    Thanks to all of the alumni who made it to the 2018 Carlson for Community Charity Auction! This event raised more than $53,000 for Connections to Independence, a local non-profit focused on assisting fostered youth right here in the Twin Cities. There were games, silent auction items, great conversation, and an energetic live auction where prizes ranged from personalized dinners with faculty to full-day boating excursions and were snatched up by the highest bidder. The 2019 Carlson for Community Charity Auction will take place at TCF Bank Stadium on February 23, 2019, starting at 7:30pm. We've found another great local charity that needs our help! Don't miss out on all of the fun and enjoyable additions we've got in store for the 2019 Auction. We'll give you a hint – photo booth, wine toss, and delicious food options – enough said. Keep your eyes out for more information coming this fall.
