The Project Friendship Fundraiser: An Evening with Minnesota Sports Legends Featuring Bud Grant and John Gagliardi is set for 6 p.m. Friday, April 29, at St. Andrew Lutheran Church.
At 6 p.m. a pre-game silent auction and meet and greet with Coaches Grant and Gagliardi in Fellowship Hall are planned. The program begins at 7 p.m. in the Sanctuary.
Featured speakers are NFL Hall of Fame Coach Bud Grant and Hall of Fame Coach John Gagliardi. "Celebrating 40 years since the famous Vikings NFC Championship game win and the Johnnies 1976 National Championship teams, these two home-grown coaches will share memorable stories of each event to benefit St. Andrew’s Project Friendship," according to a news release.
A silent auction will be held in the Fellowship Hall before the event and a live auction during the event. The community event's goal is to raise awareness and funds for the program for single-parent families.
