Waconia: Ridgeview Foundation’s Golf and Taste Celebration

The annual Golf and Taste Celebration raises money for Ridgeview Medical Center.

Raise money for the Ridgeview Medical Center and enjoy the region’s leading fundraiser at the Ridgeview Foundation’s 28th annual Golf and Taste Celebration on June 24 at Island View Golf Club in Waconia. Last year, the event raised more than $1 million in support of the Innovation for Generations campaign, which will fund renovations in the hospital’s medical and surgical wing. This year, organizers are hoping to meet last year’s total so the Innovations for Generations campaign can be completed.The morning and afternoon golf sessions filled up quickly, but even non-golfers can enjoy the Taste event, featuring food from more than 20 local restaurants, including Biella and Jake O’Connor’s Public House, both located in Excelsior, and Lola’s Lake House in Waconia. There will also be a silent and a live auction. Tickets for the Taste event are $40. Visit ridgeviewfoundation.org for details.
