DULUTH, Minnesota – (June 6, 2023) Adolfson & Peterson Construction (AP), a national, family-owned construction management and contracting company, recently hosted its second annual charity bean bag tournament in Duluth, Minn. For the second year in a row, proceeds raised were donated to The Northern Lights Foundation, a local organization. The Northern Lights Foundation is a 501c3 nonprofit that seeks to ease the emotional and financial stresses placed on families with children who have life-threatening illnesses. The event sold out one month before the tournament itself and brought in a total of $11,000, exceeding last year’s total donation of $8,000.
“At AP, we are committed to giving back to the communities where we live and work — and we love supporting the Duluth community,” said Patrick Sims, Director of Operations, AP. “It was an honor to host our second annual tournament this year to support The Northern Lights Foundation and the people they serve.”
The event took place at Clyde Iron Works and consisted of a bean bag tournament, food and beverages, prizes, a silent auction and an afternoon of networking. More than 64 teams participated in the event, including local AP partners, subcontractors, suppliers, and vendors. AP has already selected the date for next year’s tournament, set for May 2 at Clyde Iron Works.
