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.

Red Wing has, “a beautiful and quaint small river feel with a lot to do and a lot to see,” says Brittany O’Neill, director of sales and events for Red Wing Golf Course. “Red Wing provides a great change of scenery with something for everyone. Hiking, biking, shopping, dining and, of course, golf!” 

 
In July, Chris Heeter, The Wild Institute and thousands of fans had to say goodbye to beloved speaker dog Tuu Weh.

With her fists closed tightly, Chris Heeter let her hands drop lightly to her sides, opening her palms widely and wildly. And with that small, simple motion, Heeter was unknowingly opening not just her hands, but her heart to a presence that would change her life as well as thousands of others.
