Thank you, Salut! party goers!
Standing under a sparkling Eiffel Tower at the Town and Country Club in Saint Paul, 250 people of all ages gathered on Saturday, Jan. 23, to raise money at the second annual gala to benefit the Greg Marzolf Jr. Foundation. It was a great evening, with much laughter and energy shared by the guests! Just look at these pictures!
French food and wine, a ‘Parisian” artist painting scenic landscapes, wine tasting, cake walk, prize boards: all raising money to help children and adults in the Twin Cities who struggle with the effects of muscular dystrophy.
The results of all this frivolity? More money raised than at our first event, Ciao!, in January 2009! We topped our efforts in every category – all thanks to YOUR GENEROSITY! Drum roll please…We raised nearly $26,000 at Salut! A Cause to Cook for a Cure! Thank you to all who attended and to our generous sponsors:
Executive Chef sponsor: Casper’s & Runyon’s Nook & Shamrocks;
Assistant Chef sponsor: Betty Crocker;
Pastry Chef sponsors: Fishbowl Solutions, Bremer Bank, Decko Products, Green Mill Restaurants, R.F. Moeller Jeweler.
The Greg Marzolf Jr. Foundation received recognition from the Minnesota Medical Foundation for its ongoing support of research and clinical trials that explore new gene therapies and treatment.

Thank you for caring and contributing to the Greg Marzolf Jr. Foundation.! Our work continues with renewed confidence and enthusiasm.
Thank you to the many Salut! volunteers.
