After such a huge success last year, we are hosting our second annual benefit and silent auction at The Historic John P. Furber Farm. Like last year, guests enjoy dinner, dessert and one drink ticket with admission and there will be fun events happening throughout the night such as a wine/beer pull, a photo booth, Charlie Girl merch table and the heads or tails game. Last but not least – we are downright tickled pink to announce our entertainment this year is CHARLIE PARR!!
“An easily confused and very shy individual, Charlie Parr has been traveling around singing his songs ever since leaving Austin Minnesota in the 1980’s in search of Spider John Koerner, whom he found about 100 miles north at the Viking Bar one Sunday night. The experience changed his life, made him more or less unemployable, and brings us to now: 13 recordings, 250 shows a year or more, 200,000 miles on a well broke in Kia, and a nasty fear of heights. Resonator fueled folk songs from Duluth Minnesota.”
We’ll be posting details of some of the featured auction items on our blog throughout the coming weeks so check back!
Proceeds from this event will be benefitting young children with congenital heart defects and their families. The majority of the monies raised will go in combination to support families we sponsor – just like Vidar and Clark – the two heart warriors we are currently sponsoring, and also to local hospitals (University of Minnesota Masonic Children’s Hospital, and Children’s Hospital and Clinics of Minnesota) researching ways to eradicate these diseases.
Although we anticipate having family-friendly events in the future, this event is best for adults only.
