THANK YOU for making our first inaugural Fish House Frenzy a huge success! We raised more than $34,000 at the auction that will go to help our neighbors in need live in homes that are safe, healthy and warm.
Even if you missed the auction, you can still join the fun! The Minnesota Bound-themed ice house built by Dunwoody College of Technology will be available via a raffle to be drawn on December 6, 2014 at 3 p.m. at Joe’s Sporting Goods. Tickets are $20 per ticket. If you would like to purchase raffle tickets, please email Kathy at email@example.com.
All of the proceeds from this event will support our efforts to provide critical repairs for homeowners in need — particularly older adults, individuals living with disabilities, families with children and members of the armed services.
We would like to send another thank you to our amazing builders – Adolfson & Peterson Construction, Kraus-Anderson Construction and Dunwoody College of Technology.
We would also like to thank our generous sponsors including: Ron Schara Productions, KFAN-FM & K102 FM/iHeart Media, BATC Foundation, Bolger, Breezy Point Resort, Clam, Coldwell Banker Burnet, Cragun’s Resort, Cub Foods, Eskimo, Frattallone’s Ace Hardware, Honeywell, Ice Castles Fish Houses, Joe’s Sporting Goods, Minnesota Timberwolves and Lynx, Mortenson Construction, Peace Coffee, Pepsi, Rapala, Ryan Companies, Scherer Brothers Lumber, StrikeMaster Ice Augers, Subway, Thrivent Financial, and Wuollet Bakery.
We are thrilled to announce the Fish House Frenzy, a brand-new 24-hour competition between construction teams to build epic fish houses in support of our efforts to help homeowners in need. Teams from Adolfson & Peterson Construction, Kraus-Anderson Construction and Dunwoody’s Construction Sciences Program will be given a trailer frame and running lights from Ice Castle Fish Houses, but the rest is up to them!
The event will take place in the parking lot of Joe’s Sporting Goods, 33 East County Road B, Saint Paul. The building period will begin at 7 a.m. on Friday, October 17 and end at 7 a.m. on Saturday, October 18. The auction, featuring donated items and two of the completed fish houses, will begin at 10 a.m. on Saturday, October 18.
We invite you to join us to watch the building process and enjoy food and beverages. When the construction is complete, the public will be able to tour the fish houses and bid on two of the finished products during a live auction at 10 am on Saturday. The third fish house will be available through a raffle, with tickets on sale at the Frenzy.
