2018 Event Memories
March Madness Burger Bash
Valentini’s Supper Club hosted the fourth “March Madness Burger Bash” on Thursday, March 15, 2018. Approximately 300 burgers were served and there were many great raffle prizes to win.
Special thanks go out to Valentini’s for sponsoring this friendraiser and donating proceeds of $2,700 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, Sidelines Sports Bar, Side Lake Liquor, TNT Dom, Tom & Jerry’s and Valentini’s for donating prizes for the raffles. We appreciate your support!
23rd Annual Golf Outing
The Chisholm Community Foundation held its 23rd annual golf tournament on July 30, 2018 at the Mesaba Country Club. One hundred five 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. Minnesota Industries came out victorious at this year’s tourney—their team consisted of Tony Marturano, Mark Brusacoram, Robert Valentini, Dan Pallin and Tom Gornick.
Thank you to all of our corporate partners, hole sponsors, golfers, businesses and individuals who donated prizes, and all the volunteers who gave their time to assist throughout the day and evening. With your help, we raised over $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 and to E.H. Lawrence Co. for sponsoring the lunches. Join us for next year’s golf outing on Monday, July 29, 2019!
2018 Slide the City
July 14, 2018 was a warm, sunny, humid day—perfect for sliding down Chisholm’s Main Street on a 1,000 foot waterslide. Once again, Slide the City brought thousands of people of all ages from across the Range and the United States to our little town. The Chisholm Community Foundation, along with 45 other sponsors, hosted Slide the City, a family-friendly slip and slide water party event. More than 2,000 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, City Crew Workers and the over 60 volunteers who helped to make this event a success. Chisholm is a community that is second to none and comes out in droves to support causes—in both good times and bad. The Chisholm Community Foundation truly appreciates everyone’s support!
Slide the City is tentatively being planned for Summer 2019!
