Name: "A Day Out for Michael" - Shop, Dine or Fill your tank at local businesses in the area!
Date: April 28, 2018
Event Description:
Michael Landquist, a Junior at Nevis High School, was involved in a serious car accident on Tuesday, March 20.  Michael’s tragedy resulted in a shattered femur, broken hip, broken humerus, broken vertebrae, and broken nose.  He was airlifted to Sanford Medical Center in Fargo.  He has had two surgeries to date and has a long road to recovery ahead of him.  He has returned home for a non-bearing weight phase of physical therapy.  Afterwards, he will begin a new physical therapy routine.  We will know more about what this entails as he progresses through this next phase.  There will be many more doctors visits to Fargo.  
 
In an effort to combine forces of all who want to be of assistance to the Landquist family, we have arranged a benefit for the family called “A Day Out for Michael” on Saturday, April 28. Local businesses have been invited to participate in a fundraiser in which their business allocates a designated amount of profit or particular sale event to a fund dedicated to medical expenses for the Landquist family. The business operates as usual.  The only difference will be donating a portion of the earnings to the Landquist medical fund. So far, the following is a list of the businesses participating and their pledges:
 
Saturday, April 28
1. Iron Horse: 25% of earnings from 11:00a.m.-10:00p.m.
2. T&M Express: 5% of gas and diesel sales and 10% of merchandise sales open to close
3. Leona’s: 25% of earnings from 4:00-close
4. Muskie Waters Co.: 50% of earnings from open to close
5. Northwoods Cafe: 100% of earnings from 4:00-8:00
6. Akeley ARCC: 25% of earnings from open to close
7. Dorset Chick'n Coop: 10% of earnings from open to close 
 
A basketball event is also being held at Nevis School at 3:00 Saturday, April 28. The Legends Alumni game will showcase Team Wolff vs Team Stanwick. Free will donations will be taken at the door. During this event, there will also be a silent auction held from 2:00-5:30. All proceeds will go to the Landquist family.

So, when you're out and about on Saturday, April 28... shop, dine or fill your tank at participating businesses listed above and a portion of your purchase(s) will be contributed to this fundraising event.
