Birdies for BestPrep a Hole-in-One!

500 guests joined us at the Radisson Blu Mall of America on Saturday, January 30 for our Birdies for BestPrep fundraiser.

This annual event raised more than $62,000 for BestPrep’s business, career, and financial literacy programs – a 7% increase over 2015.

Attendees enjoyed fun activities including mini golf, a mega putt, money grab, caricature drawings, wall of wine, door prizes, and a raffle drawing.

Xcel Energy was honored with BestPrep’s 2016 Humanitarian Award for the company’s 30 year commitment to providing financial and volunteer support to educate and empower Minnesota youth. The award was accepted by Chris Clark, President of Northern States Power – Xcel Energy.
