The Timberwolves are excited to announce the last Girl Scout Dance Clinic of the 2013-2014 season:

Sunday, March 16th, 2014

Minnesota Timberwolves vs. Sacramento Kings 6:00 pm @ Target Center

Dance Clinic: 2:00 - 4:00 PM

Performance : 5:20 PM (approx)

 

This is a great opportunity to learn a new dance and practice new skills in a clinic, led by the Timberwolves Dancers! Girls will not only perform with the Timberwolves Dancers at the Timberwolves vs. Kings game but they will also receive a special goodie bag and Timberwolves patch to wear proudly. This is also a great way for Brownies to earn credit toward the Dancer Badge, or for credit toward the Athlete Legacy Badge. Please see the attached flyer for details and registration, and feel free to share with your troop or troop leaders in your area. Space is limited! Hope to see you there!

A good cause for your cookie fundraising

posted Aug 15, 2013, 2:54 PM by Website Administrator   [ updated Aug 21, 2013, 12:18 AM ]

Interested in a unique fundraising opportunity? A group affiliated with the Minneapolis K9 Foundation is raising money to buy bulletproof vests for their police dogs. Until now, none of the MPD dogs has had any sort of protection while on the job! The Foundation wants to make sure the K9s have the same protective gear that their human handlers do. The vests are specially fitted for each dog and essential to keeping them safe. However, each vest costs $2,600! If you are interested in ising your cookie earnings to raise the money to buy a vest for a K9, your troop's name/number will be stitched on the vest as a thank you for your hard work. Contact Cassie Bonstrom atcassie.bonstrom@gmail.com if you'd like more information!
