Press Release Summer Food Fest 2017

June 14, 2017

On behalf of Toys for Joy and the MetroNorth Chamber of Commerce, we want to thank the community for their support of our 7th Annual Summer Food Fest on June 13 at Westwood Middle School in Blaine. Almost 600 people participated! Our new location was very well-received; especially the air-conditioned cafeteria!

Because of the eventís success, we raised additional funds for Toys for Joy, which ensures local children have a toy at Christmas; and the MetroNorth Chamber, which promotes area economic and workforce development. Our nonprofits work hard to make this a fabulous place to live, work, and play, and we express our gratitude to everyone for their support.

This event wouldnít be possible without our sponsors: Allina Health, Blaine Festival Volunteer Committee, AMEC, BNSF Railway, Counselor Realty, Kraus-Anderson Construction Company and SPAAR. Special thanks to the staff at Spring Lake Park District #16 for their assistance as well.

And of course, we are indebted to our food vendors: Acapulco, Broadway Bar & Pizza, Dunn Brothers Coffee, Chick-fil-A, Chili's, Costco, Counselor Realty, Croonerís Lounge and Supper Club, Cub Foods, Edgewood Senior Living, Jetís Pizza, Majestic Oaks, Nothing Bundt Cakes, Outback Steak House, Running Aces, Samís Club, Q-Bitez, and Unique Dining Catering.

We hope everyone enjoyed themselves. Feel free to check out the many photos on the Summer Food Fest Facebook site. Thanks again!
