The sixth annual Preston Area Community Foundation Dinner and Celebration will be held Monday, February 27 beginning at 5:30 pm at the Branding Iron restaurant in Preston. This year’s program will include recognition of the past year donors and comments from grant recipients. In addition, the keynote speaker this year will be Coach Jerry Kill, the head football coach at the University of Minnesota. The Foundation is very pleased that Coach Kill has taken time from his very busy schedule to attend our dinner. His comments should be very well received and motivational.

The evening will also allow for attendees to participate in fund raising, as a silent auction and live auction will be held that evening. Some of the auction items available include tickets to a Minnesota Gopher Football game, an Apollo in-home wine tasting, accommodations in Branson, and many locally made craft items. Proceeds from the live and silent auction will be matched by the F & M Community Bank with $.50 being donated by the Bank for every $1.00 raised through the auctions. Gehling Auction of Preston will be conducting the live auction.

The Preston Area Community Foundation serves the greater Preston Area by supporting programs and projects that improve the quality of life and build a stronger community. These projects and programs have included new tennis courts, playground equipment, the O’Hara schoolhouse, the Fillmore Central early childhood education program, and Free Preston Nights at the Commonweal Theater.
