The St. Louis Park Community Youth and Development Fund has been busy deciding and giving out money to organizations by giving back and providing a helping hand. Through the generosity of Phil Weber and the proceeds of the Park Tavern pull tabs in 2017 we were able to grant funds of $76,750.
Since 2004, we have been granting funds to organizations touching the lives of St. Louis Park residents totaling over $588,525.
The whole community is invited to join us as we recognize the many nonprofits that support the youth in our community. Remember, all the money raised here is spent here. Please join us for a wonderful evening of beer tasting and friendship.
