EERC staff members—spinners and nonspinners alike—recently participated in Altru’s Spin for Kids fundraising event. The EERC Energy Stars was one of 32 teams that participated in this year’s event, and the EERC was able to raise over $5300 for this worthy cause.

The Spin for Kids program provides funding for critical programs, services, and equipment for kids with special needs in our community and region. As an added bonus, the Engelstad Family Foundation paired up with the cause this year and matched funds up to $75,000, bringing the total raised to a record-breaking $175,000!

The EERC Social Cause Committee presented Jessica Strand from Altru
with a $5300 check at an EERC staff meeting.
“It was great to see everyone working together to spin and volunteer the day of the event as well as all of the fundraising efforts that took place leading up to it,” said Kari Suedel.

The EERC Energy Stars spin team included Kari Suedel, Angie Morgan, Josh Stanislowski, Carolyn Nyberg, Corey Irion, Debby Johnson, Michelle Olderbak, and Katherine Dunham. Other EERC employees who volunteered the day of the event included Chantsa Dalkhaa, Melanie Jensen, Rhonda Olson, Jane Russell, and Sue White.
