Celebrate with food, music and fun at the Roof Raiser for the Lee Carlson Center for Mental Health and Well Being at Bob's Produce Ranch on Friday, Oct. 12, 2012, 5–7 p.m.
The Roof Raiser gets its name from public officials who spend the night on the roof of Bob's Produce as part of the fundraising event.
Fundraising teams are still seeking your donations. This year, Team Fridley reached its initial goal of $5,000 on Oct. 3—meaning Fridley Mayor Scott Lund won't have to sleep in a tent—but the team upped its goal to $6,000 to help the Lee Carlson Center in Fridley.
"I'll be waving from the ground, wishing everyone a good night!" wrote Lund on the Fridley Patch Facebook page.
As of early Friday, Team Fridley is at $5,310 so needs your donation to raise $690 more. And other fundraising teams could use your help too.
Money from the Roof Raiser goes to help the nonprofit Lee Carlson Center
At the Fridley clinic, the center offers child and adolescent psychiatry, individual and family therapy and psychological tesing/assessment.
Lee Carlson Center staff also visit 20 schools in four northern-suburban school districts, providing "free to family" services that help more than 1,500 at-risk youth each year.
