2016 Fraser Annual Benefit

Last week marks the fourth year GenerationNOW provided entertainment for the Annual Fraser Benefit.  This is an amazing organization that provides life-changing services to individuals with special needs at all stages of life.   By the end of the evening over $600,000 was raised!

The night was truly magical.  Guest indulged in an elegant three-course dinner while listening to the sounds of Paul Peterson Orchestra and performances by the award-winning jazz artist Patty Peterson.  At the end of the evening, we took over and got everyone on the dance floor.  DJ Crozzworkz started the night with an amazing set and then handed off the turntables to DJ Mad Mardigan.

Fraser began in 1935 and has become Minnesota's largest and most experienced provider of autism services along with providing services for mental health and other developmental disabilities for children and adults with special needs through healthcare, education, and housing.  To be a part of an event like this is truly an honor.

Top 5 Bachelor Party Ideas In Minnesota

With wedding season in full effect, we thought it would be fun to come up with a list of the top 5 bachelor party ideas in Minnesota.  That don't include strippers.

1)  Rent A Lake Home Or Stay At A Resort
Minnesota is known as the state of 10,000 lakes and in the hustle and bustle of the city, it is often easy to forget how calming the simplicity of nature can be.   Pack up some food and beer and get out of town for some nature based bonding.  Enjoy activities such as fishing, water skiing, golfing and hunting.
