The weather’s warming up and it’s time to mark your calendars for Meals on Heels 2017! This year’s big cocktail party to support Meals on Wheels in the Twin Cities is set for Thursday, Aug. 17.

We are also excited to announce that another big change for this year’s event: After 8 years at the Harriet Island Pavilion, we will be moving the party to the Nicollet Island Pavilion in Minneapolis!

Our experiences on the St. Paul riverfront over the years have been exceptional, but as this event continues to grow, a bigger location is needed. The Nicollet Island Pavilion offers that and another gorgeous patio right on the Mississippi River (we’ll just be on the other side of it now).

The Nicollet Island Pavilion is a premier event and wedding venue, and has some of the best views of the downtown skyline and the Stone Arch Bridge in all of Minneapolis. The brick details and high ceilings offer a beautiful and classic look to the building, which was built in 1893.

Based on feedback from past attendees, another addition to this year’s event will be...air conditioning! This will offer our guests the opportunity to cool off on a hot August night while having an unforgettable time supporting Meals on Wheels in the Twin Cities.
