You’re Invited to Attend for an Exclusive Game Day Experience

Inver Grove Heights/South Saint Paul – The River Heights Chamber of Commerce wants to invite the community and their friends and colleagues to participate in the Big Game Gala presented in partnership with the Minnesota Vikings on Tuesday, December 5, 2017, at the JW Marriott at Mall of America in Bloomington.  The event will be held from 6-10 p.m. and include confirmed featured guests Minnesota Vikings #22 Harrison Smith and Paul Allen of KFAN, as well as executives from the Minnesota Vikings!

We know that everyone won’t be able to attend Super Bowl LII, but everyone can participate in the celebration at the Big Game Gala,” excitedly announced Jennifer Gale, President of the River Heights Chamber of Commerce and Progress Plus Economic Development Foundation.  The Big Game Gala’s vision is to foster excitement, engagement, and awareness within the River Heights community of the positive impact the Minnesota Vikings bring to our region by hosting Super Bowl LII and relocating their headquarters and practice facilities to the area.

“We are excited to partner with the Minnesota Vikings to bring this exclusive event to our members and community partners.  At the Big Game Gala, we will hear more about the opening of the new Vikings facility in Eagan and Super Bowl LII being hosted by Minneapolis in 2018.  Our hope is to bring business leaders, their families and employees together for an evening of fun, all while enjoying a “Big Game” dining experience,” shared Michele Hein, Gala Chair, River Heights Chamber Board Member.

6:00 p.m. – Pre-Game with Minnesota Vikings Cheerleaders

Annual River Heights Chamber Golf Classic Open to Business Community

New Times, New Auctions, Same Great Fundraiser

 Inver Grove Heights/South Saint Paul – The River Heights Chamber of Commerce invites the community to golf in the Chamber’s Annual Golf Classic fundraiser presented by AirTech Heating & Cooling, on Monday, June 20, 2016 at Southview Country Club at 239 E. Mendota Road in West St. Paul.

Southview Country Club is a premier 18-hole course whose sheer aesthetic beauty lies in stark contrast to the challenge it provides to golfers of every skill level. It is the kind of course you never grow tired of playing, and are always proud to bring your guests to.  Today, Southview is noted for its immaculate rolling fairways, mature trees, numerous water hazards featuring fountains and magnificent landscaping.  And of course, the finest greens in this part of the country.

June 20th is promised to be filled with fun including a Bloody Mary/Mimosa bar while you get checked-in and practice your swings, contests on the course, and a ball drop contest and awards BBQ following the day’s play.  Registration begins at 10 a.m., with a shot gun start for teams at 11:00 a.m.  For more event times of the day, visit our event page here. An online auction will be sure to please with great items starting June 1st running through the tournament on June 20th (watch for the link coming soon).

One lucky winner of the Chamber’s May online auction (May 16 – May 27 ) will get to add a celebrity to their foursome at this year’s tournament.  Adam Thielen, wide receiver for the Minnesota Vikings will be joining a team to play in the River Heights Chamber’s Golf Classic.  Adam was a local college standout at Mankato State University and signed with the Vikings in 2013 as an undrafted free agent.  “We’re excited to have Adam with us on June 20th and see his talents on the golf course vs. the football field,” says Travis Jensen of Home Federal Savings Bank and Golf Task Force Chair.

Special thanks to these businesses for being major sponsors of the tournament: AirTech Heating & Cooling, Antonsen Construction, Home Federal Savings Bank, Quality Auto Care Center and Sanimax.

Golf is $175/golfer (after May 16th) or a discounted rate of $600 per foursome.  Guests may attend the BBQ dinner only for $35/person to network and socialize.  For more information on the golf tournament or to register to attend, visit us online at www.riverheights.com/golf or call the River Heights Chamber of Commerce at 651.451.2266.
