Nordic American Thanksgiving Breakfast Recap

You may remember from an earlier blog post that Sons of Norway hosted the 28th annual Nordic American Thanksgiving Breakfast last month. The result was a resounding success! In addition to three great speakers from the Minneapolis community and an engaging MC, we had nearly 1,000 people in attendance!

What’s more, thanks to the generosity of our attendees, we were able to raise more than $15,000 for our selected charities, the Minnesota Military Family Foundation and Second Harvest Heartland. This money will be used to help families throughout Minnesota during times of difficulty and is greatly appreciated by all.

Just as important as the donations, the program itself was popular with the audience. So much so that we have been asked to share the presentations of this year’s featured speakers. Click here to read Dr. David Anderson’s speech and we'll hopefully have the others soon, which we'll be happy to share.

If you weren’t able to make it to this year’s breakfast, I hope you’ll read the remarks from last month and keep an eye out for next year’s event, which will be held on Tuesday, November 25, 2014.
