Show your support of Lakes Proud by helping us kick off Small Business Saturday with a special Business After Hours fundraiser! Join Notch 8 Chow House and Drinkery, Loco Espress Coffee House and Boutique, and Goody’s Gourmet Treats as they cohost our last networking event of the year.

The District

Located in The District of the historical Northern Pacific Center, guests will enjoy visiting each business during the social hour while nibbling on savory appetizers and tasty treats accompanied with aromatic coffee and local craft beer. All guests will have a chance to win 2- gift baskets filled with specialty items from all three hosts (must be present to win)!

  • 4:30 PM // Stroll through the host businesses to enjoy appetizers, partake in beverages and socialize
  • 5:20 PM // Walk over to The Exchange across the parking lot for the program.
  • 5:25 PM // Welcome and introductions
  • 5:30 PM // Lakes Proud program
  • 5:50 PM // Drawing for prizes
  • 6:00 PM // Host businesses will remain open after the program to allow more time for networking and purchasing items.

Social distancing and state guidelines will be followed. Ample hand sanitizer will be readily available. Snacks and beverages will be available in individual servings with no utensils being shared. For the Business After Hours announcements and program, a microphone will be used so attendees can remain socially distant by six feet over a large area. Door prizes will be arranged on a table, so when drawn, winners can take their prize without coming into personal contact. All areas will be clearly marked and social distancing expectations will be communicated and reinforced at check-in, on signage, and during the program.

Registration for this event is limited to 150 due to COVID indoor guidelines. To make your reservation, click on the Register Now button below or call (218) 829-2838. If you’re not able to attend, join us live on Facebook for our Lakes Proud Program at 5:30 PM.
