EP Gives

Our annual EP Gives fundraising event is a time to celebrate philanthropy and recognize our newest grantees. We're excited about our 2021 EP Gives on April 29. It will be our first virtual gala, and among other things it will help celebrate the Foundation's 40th anniversary.

The Foundation is thrilled to announce that it’s “going virtual” with it EP Gives fundraising event on Thursday evening, April 29, 2021.

We have exciting plans for this 2021 event, not the least of which is recognition of the Foundation’s 40th anniversary this year. We’ll have great stories of impact to share, and awesome items up for bid. FOX 9 “Morning News” anchor Tom Butler will be our emcee.

Registration is free, but there is a limited-quantity $100 VIP ticket option that includes an EP Gives celebration box delivered in Eden Prairie. This incredible celebration box features the recipe, fresh ingredients (protein NOT included), and a video link to a cooking demonstration for preparing Fat Pants Brewing’s signature beer-braised carnitas.
