We need your help to get to the Minnesota Twins

We need your help to raise $700 to rent a coach bus to get to the Minnesota Twins game on Saturday, May 11.

With the convenience of a coach bus, we will be dropped off right at Target Field and we don’t have to worry about securing a seat on the return train trip back to the Mall of America.

We have 25 people attending the game and we need your help.

If you can help, please mail your donation to:  The Arc Mower County, 401 Second Avenue NE, Austin, MN 55912 with Twins 2019 in the subject line or you can visit for other ways to make a donation.

If you have any questions, please call 507-433-8994 or email
