Recall that the Eagan Foundation is the fiscal agent for the Eagan Core Greenway Fund and has overseen the proceeds from last Fall's Greenway Music Festival. Over the past many years, the Eagan Foundation has distributed tens of thousands of dollars to many worthy local functions, most notably disbursements in the form of scholarships.

So please consider joining fellow Friends of the Eagan Core Greenway members for this fun event this Thursday.

We hope to see you there!

The original announcement from the Eagan Foundation follows:

Itís a fun time to see people and taste some good wine!
The Eagan Foundation is hosting its 5th annual Wine Tasting and Silent Auction event on Thursday, April 20, 2006, from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Eagan Community Center.
There will be lots of different wines to taste, nice food, some music, a variety of silent auction items, and a lot of nice people to mingle with!

As the community foundation for Eagan, the Foundation annually distributes scholarships donated by community businesses and organizations to graduating seniors living in Eagan; this year we will be distributing $44,000 in scholarships. The Foundation also recently partnered with the City of Eagan and the Eagan High School Student Government to raise funds to purchase and deliver audio visual equipment for the schools in Pass Christian Mississippi - you may have heard about it in the local papers and through the schools. The Foundation also assists the Eagan Teen Advisory Board and the Friends of Eagan Core Greenway conduct their activities to benefit the community. In past years, the Foundation was instrumental in raising and distributing community contributions for flood and storm relief, for moving the Grandfather Tree, and for construction of the Ice Arena. The mission of the Foundation is to be there when the Eagan community comes together to meet community needs. This Wine Event is the Foundationís major fundraiser and public event of the year, the fundraiser that permits the Foundation to have resources to respond to needs in the community as they arise.

Tickets are $35 per person and are tax deductible. Dress is business casual and many people come right from work.

Please let me know if you would like tickets and I will get them to you. Or you could email . Please mention the event to other friends and colleagues in Eagan or elsewhere and I can get them tickets as well. It can be a fun party with friends, neighbors and other congenial people.

Hope to hear from you soon and to see you there! If you arenít able to attend, please consider a donation to the Foundation instead. You give to the Eagan Community when you contribute to the Eagan Foundation.
