Coming up this Saturday, January 30th, The Hermantown Varsity and Junior Boys Hockey Program is hosting a benefit for their hockey organization at the Beacon Sports Bar & Grill on Hermantown Rd. Who says that beloved back yard game of bean bag toss is just for the summertime? Hence the name "Freeze Your Bags Off".

Hopefully you won't literally freeze your "bags" off, the weather has been cooperating lately. It all starts at Noon. There will be fire pits outside, along with the good feelings of giving to a great cause to keep you warm. Registration is $100 per team of two. So, $50 per person gets you one free brat basket per person, one free drink per person, one free smore per person, and an entry into the door prize drawings.

Don't forget the free warmth from the fire and the good feelings of giving, those, my friends, are priceless. 1st place is $300 CASH, 2nd is $200, and 3rd is $100. If you want to get involved call 218-393-5597, event contact email is You can sign up the day of the event and there's lots of great prizes up for grabs from local businesses.
