HelmsBriscoe, a global leader in meeting procurement, hosted its fifth annual HB Cares event, which impacted seven local charities including the Ronald McDonald House Twin Cities, Love Your Melon, The Simpson House, Bloomington Theatre and Art Center, MN Assistance Council for Veterans, Earle Brown Charter School and National Ataxia Foundation. The end-of-the-year holiday party was held at the Radisson Blu at the Mall of America on November 20. The firm raised over $70,000 this year to purchase care packages and other goods for the charities. Associates, clients and partners worked together at various stations throughout the night to assemble packages for homeless families, children going through chemotherapy, veterans, teen moms and more.

International Live Events Association (ILEA-MSP) met at U.S. Bank Stadium on Sept. 29 for networking, lunch, a tour of the stadium and an address from Maureen Bausch, CEO of the Minnesota Super Bowl Host Committee. Attendees learned about the different ways to get involved in the 10-day Bold North Festival that will lead up to Super Bowl LII.

 

Associations North, formerly MSAE (Midwest Society of Association Executives), celebrated 60 years at Aria Minneapolis on Aug. 4 by honoring the past, present and future. Guests were greeted with stilt walkers, valet parking, champagne tower and a walk through the decades in the form of 8-foot-by-8-foot photo walls from the past six decades. Member logos were highlighted in a big “60” for a memorable backdrop. The four-sided bar and video cube overhead highlighted more member photos and videos on the impact of associations (complete with a blooper reel).

 

The Midwest Society of Association Executives (MSAE) celebrated the holidays in Western style with its themed Holiday Hoedown on Dec. 4, 2015 at the Earle Brown Heritage Center in Brooklyn Center. A silent auction, Wall of Wine benefiting MSAE’s charity of the year, Matter, a Heads or Tails game for cash, holiday photos, and themed food and drinks had guests in good spirits. To make the night even better, Roger Radley made sure the group was in stitches during his comedy set.
