E4E in Minneapolis raised nearly $1000 for Emily Sandall Foundation

Hello, friends.

In April, Eat for Equity in Minneapolis raised more than $900 for the Emily Sandall Foundation! This will be matched by the foundation itself!

The Emily Sandall Foundation and its camper scholarship help a deserving young person experience a Menogyn wilderness trip. Our friend Emily Sandall was a generous spirit. While she lived, Emily’s passion was working with youth, whether it was with street kids in Mexico and Nepal, or American teens in the wilderness. She saw many opportunities in life to teach, to challenge, to laugh and dance, and to help others. She lived simply but passionately. Emily died in 2006 while hiking in Yosemite, but her family continues her work and spirit with a foundation in her name, which supports organizations with a common mission of helping underprivileged youth.

The foundation established a camper scholarship at YMCA Camp Menogyn, where Emily was a wilderness guide (and where she jumped in the lake, fully clothed, on countless occasions). An important criteria for the scholarship recipient is a passion for helping others through community service.

Last month, Eat for Equity was hosted in Plymouth by friends Mary and Skip. People feasted on…
Brick-oven pizza [with Tienter Farms Italian Sausage, Housemade Mozzarella, Artichoke-Spinach-Pesto, Mushroom]
Wild Rice Salad with Spinach, Pecan, Scallions, Cranberries
Trail Mix, of course
Crudite and Herbed Bean Spread
Espresso Brownies made with Dunn Bros espresso beans
Wildberry Hooch

The food was outstanding! Thanks to everyone who joined us to support this cause in loving memory of Emily Sandall!
