Flock Your Friends Fundraiser
Each summer we are available to "Flock Your Friends" for $1.00 per bird! We will place flamingos in the yards of your family and friends, with the money raised being donated back to our local community.
Do you love Butterbraids? We do too! Don't know what a butterbraid is? They are hand-braided pastries filled with your choice of 7 flavors and they are delicious! We use the money raised to donate back into our community.
Happy Hour With a Purpose
The beginning of the year we host this event, selling tickets that include 2 drinks and food from 6-10 vendors. Guests also get entered into drawings for door prizes and we sell tickets for a chance to win 2 sleds full of booze. There is live entertainment and the proceeds are donated back into our community. We have recently made this more of a virtual event, still supporting our local businesses.
Volunteering With Other Non-Profits
We help other local organizations each year as well. We sell raffle tickets and volunteer at the Run For The Lakes to help the Jaycee's. We volunteer at The Frozen Fore Food Fest to help Camp Confidence. We support the Pohl's Children Foundation, Bridges of Hope, Home Instead and so much moire!
PumpkinFest in Gregory Park
We sell concessions and give free tattoos to the children attending PumpkinFest in Gregory Park, sponsored by Brainerd Parks & Recreation.
ECFE Easter Party
The Saturday before Easter each year we host an Easter party at ECFE. We have live bunnies for the children to have their pictures taken with, games, crafts and cookie decorating as well as goodie bags for each child. We collect for the food shelf and donate the money raised back to ECFE for their scholarship fund.
