Graze 4 Good, an intimate food adventure hosted by The Minneapolis Foundation’s Fourth Generation program, is slated to be held at the Lumber Exchange Event Center from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. on April 14. The culinary-themed fundraiser will feature delicious food, a silent auction and the chance to socialize with some of the Twin Cities most in-demand chefs — all to address the needs of the community.

VIP guests will be privy to an hour of face-to-face time with featured chefs. General admission earns guests access to gourmet bites made by each chef and two beverage tickets.

Proceeds from this event go directly to the grantmaking of Fourth Generation, a program that engages philanthropists to learn the skills of smart giving and pool their resources to make a greater impact in the community than they could alone. Every year, Fourth Generation members vote to choose a local issue, then research it together and make grants to nonprofits.

Over the past eight years, Fourth Generation has granted nearly $375,000 to local nonprofits that are creating positive change on issues such as affordable housing, criminal justice reform, mental health and youth homelessness.

Hotel Emery and Fleur de Lis are teaming up for a Brunch, Blooms and Bottomless Bubbly event on Sunday, Oct. 20. The event will include a family-style brunch from Emery's restaurant Giulia and executive chef  Josh Hedquist and a floral design session instructed by Fleur de Lis experts. With a lobby filled with lush greenery, Emery makes for the perfect location for a floral-focused event.

 

This October, the Xcel Energy Center and Saint Paul RiverCentre will celebrate a decade since the launch of their unrivaled sustainability program, as well as their recent LEED Platinum Certification. 

 

Due to its influx of new hotels and venues, hosting of major events like the Super Bowl LII, vibrant music and food scene, and value, Minneapolis has been named a destination on the rise in 2020 by CWT Meetings & Events.
