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.

With the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, most people are working from home. Many are social distancing or quarantining with their children, who have transitioned to online classes. Restaurants, bars, coffee shops, offices, stores and so much more have been temporarily shut down in many states, affecting daily life in the most unexpected of ways.

 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Sunday recommended that all gatherings of more than 50 people be cancelled or postponed for the next eight weeks, in order to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19. The recommendation covers events like parades, concerts, festivals, conferences, sporting events, weddings and more.

 

Gone without regional and national recognition, over the years the City of Roseville has been overlooked and even mistaken for being somewhere in St. Paul. In 2016, the Visit Roseville partnered with DestinationNext to strategically plan and determine priorities for Visit Roseville to pursue in the future to receive more recognition. After taking a self-assessment using an online diagnostic toolkit, Visit Roseville was able to establish a course of action.
