2017 Chisholm Community Event Memories
We had a wonderful year of community events in 2017. Here are some of our favorite memories!
3rd Annual March Madness Burger Bash
Valentini’s Supper Club hosted the third annual “March Madness Burger Bash” on Thursday, March 30, 2017. Approximately 300 burgers were served!
Special thanks go out to Valentini’s for sponsoring this event and donating proceeds of $2,747 to benefit the CCF. The burger baskets were great and the service fast and friendly. We’d also like to thank Jim’s Sports Club, Jubilee Foods, Keyboard Liquor, Lake Street Bar & Grill, Norri Distributing, Phillips Distributing, Starkovich Distributing, Sunny Hill Distributors, Tom & Jerry’s and Valentini’s. We appreciate your support!
2017 Slide the City
The smiles were plentiful up and down the Main Street on August 5, 2017 when the Chisholm Community Foundation, along with 42 other sponsors, hosted Slide the City. Slide the City, a family-friendly slip and slide water party event, brought over 5,000 people of all ages from across the Range and the U.S. to Chisholm’s Main Street, where a 1,000 foot water slide was set up. Over 60 volunteers helped throughout the day and evening to make this one of the most successful and fun-filled events ever to take place in our community. More than 2,300 people went down the slide. All proceeds from local ticket sales benefitted the CCF. Special thanks go out to the City of Chisholm, Chisholm Police Department, Chisholm Ambulance, and City Crew Workers.
Valentini’s Supper Club Friendraiser: Minnesota Deer Hunter’s Association
The Minnesota Deer Hunters Association’s annual banquet was held on October 4, 2017 at the Hibbing Memorial Building and attended by approximately 400 people. Valentini’s Supper Club, a longtime supporter of the Chisholm Community Foundation, sponsored the bar at the event and donated proceeds of $1,635.00 to the Chisholm Community Foundation. CCF board members were on hand to help bartend.
We’d like to thank A-1 Refrigeration and the Hibbing Memorial Building for donating various items and supplies. This event is successful because of the support of these organizations. And a very big thank you goes out to Paul David Marturano for organizing the event and for his time and dedication to the CCF. We appreciate your support and all you do!
10th Annual Holiday Wine Tasting Event
Paul & Suzi Ruper, owners of Keyboard Liquor, hosted the 10th annual Holiday Wine Tasting Festival on Friday, December 1, 2017 at Valentini’s Supper Club. Over 100 people attended the event and were able to sample 50 different wines. Guests purchased their favorite wine and received it in time for the holidays. Valentini’s added their flair with an elegant buffet of hors d’oeuvres. Paul & Suzi donated $3,200 in proceeds to benefit the CCF. CCF Advisory Board members assisted in planning and helping with the festival. Thanks to Paul & Suzi for their donation and all their support! We look forward to next year!
22nd Annual Golf Tournament
The Chisholm Community Foundation held its 22nd annual golf tournament on July 31, 2017 at the Mesaba Country Club. One hundred twenty-eight golfers geared up and participated in a beautiful, fun-filled day on the Links. A delicious buffet dinner was held at Valentini’s Supper Club after the tourney. The team of Jon Rice, Frank Gornick, Larry Johnson and Chuck Oman came out victorious at this year’s tourney!
Thank you to all of our corporate partners, hole sponsors, golfers, businesses and individuals who donated and all the volunteers who gave their time to assist throughout the day and evening. With your help, we raised approximately $10,000.00. Special thanks go out to the Chisholm Area Chamber of Commerce for conducting the raffles at the event and donating the proceeds to benefit the CCF.
