Spring is a Lovely Time to Express Gratitude
Offer a meaningful ‘Thank You!’ to the teachers, coaches, counselors (ANY staff members you choose) – who work with your children every day – for just $25. Gratitude Gifts, a delicious bag of salt water taffy from Cub Foods Minnetonka, are hand-delivered at school and include your personal message. Proceeds benefit those very same staff members when they or their teammates apply for a HEF grant. Order online here, by Monday, May 21, and we’ll be sure they’re delivered on Thursday, May 24th. Or for $5, you can send a Star Card anytime of year!

What a Bash!!
A sold out crowd enjoyed a great evening on February 24 at the Marriott Minnetonka Southwest. We had Snow Much Fun and raised a record-breaking $275,000 to support initiatives at Hopkins schools. A big thank you to our generous attendees and volunteers, and especially to our 2018 Royal Bash sponsors who help to make this event a big success. Read more about Royal Bash 2018.
