SUPPORTING OUR COMMUNITY
We enjoy giving back to the community and donate voluntarily and financially. Craig Volk is a coach with the Lakeville South Traveling Basketball program. In addition, we are excited to be a supporter of Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, and the Champions for Children celebrity golf tournament.
Champions for Children is a celebrity golf tournament that raises funds for our hospital partner, M Health Fairview Masonic Children's Hospital. More than $1.1 million has been raised for the hospital since it started 12+ years ago and is one of our favorite benefits we look forward to supporting each year! Proceeds from the event go towards Kyle Rudolph’s End Zone, featuring our Northwestern Mutual basketball court and the Zucker Family Suite and Broadcast Studio, of which we are a Foundational Partner. Both spaces are designed to help patient families during challenging times as well as provide a space to relax and engage in the therapeutic distractions and socialize with other kids.
Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) emerged from the front yard lemonade stand of cancer patient Alexandra “Alex” Scott (1996-2004). In 2000, 4-year-old Alex announced that she wanted to hold a lemonade stand to raise money to help find a cure for all children with cancer. Since Alex held that first stand, the Foundation bearing her name has evolved into a national fundraising movement, complete with thousands of supporters across the country carrying on her legacy of hope.
