bash-mardi-gras-logo-2017Royal Bash 2016 was a huge success with a sell-out crowd. We’re moving to a larger venue – the Marriott Minnetonka Southwest – so that even more HEF supporters can join us for this fun-filled evening in support of our kids. At Bash 2017, you’ll find Mardi Gras-style fun and games, Magician Tyler Erickson, and loads of other surprises!

Don’t delay: mark your calendars now, and get your tickets right here.

Individual Tickets are $100; $45 is tax deductible.

Patron Tickets are $150; $95 is tax deductible, and as a thank you for your generosity, your name will appear in the Event Catalog (when purchased before the January 30th print deadline).

A huge thank you to our Royal Bash 2017 sponsors!
