Thank you to all who participated in our inaugural Smash 4 Cash pop-up fundraiser held Sept. 18th during Honktoberfest in Biwabik. We had 55 people spray paint or smash the vehicle generously donated by Iron Range Towing and Automotive LLC. We also had several people simply donate. In total we raised $922 for area cancer patients!! Also a shout out to Northwoods Construction for their sponsorship and a THANK YOU to the Honktoberfest Committee for inviting us!
HIBBING – A total of 45 teams tossed bean bags in front of Palmer’s Tavern on Sept. 18 for Kickin’ Cancer in the Cornhole II a FUNdraiser for Angel Fund.
We had no snow this year, but everyone had a fabulous time! Double elimination play began at 11 a.m. and wrapped up around 6 p.m.
The top three winning teams were: Team J2 Jason Fillman and Jay Woodman, who took home $500; “The Seekers” Alex Stark and Brady Stahl once again earned second place and took home $300; and taking third was Matt Borgman and Vern Fillman of Mat & Vern, who took home $100. Congrats at all!
Players received a Palmer’s burger with their entry fee and all attendees had the opportunity to participate in raffles, Lucky Libations, Split the Pot, Cut the Deck for a mystery Yeti and the-ever-so-popular Long Toss.
All told, the event raised more than $12,000 for area cancer patients! That’s more than double what was raised last year.
Angel Fund is ever so grateful to all who participated, donated and stopped by to support the fund!
