Thursday, November 19 was a lot of fun, as Give to the Max Day generated approximately $6,600 for the Northeast Minneapolis Arts District. We gave away two Water Taxi experiences, to Mark Jones and Larry & Patti Rogacki, as prize incentives for donating during two time periods at a certain level.
Thanks to the following people, some off-line and a few anonymous, we raised in excess of our $2,500 goal which was matched by Mike Venne-witz in honor of State Representative Diane Loeffler. (Arts District board members provided $250 in matching money, of a total of $1,320 toward the cause.)
