Over 1,400 members, sponsors and friends enjoyed MinnPost’s 10th annual variety show on April 28 at the Historic State Theatre in downtown Minneapolis. Hundreds filled Rock Bottom Brewery for the pre-show sponsor reception. Joining regular show performers like Gov. Mark Dayton, Rep. Tom Emmer and Sen. Amy Klobuchar were first-timers “Bizarre Foods” host Andrew Zimmern, “Almanac” reporter Mary Lahammer, rapper DJ/FRND and soul singer PaviElle French. Others, including Rep. Keith Ellison, Tom Horner, actress Michelle Hutchison and Amy Koch appeared in videos throughout the program. MinnPost contributing photographer Jana Freiband captured the evening.

Funds raised at MinnRoast 2017 were in honor of Lee Lynch and Terry Saario, whose philanthropic and creative work helped launch MinnPost ten years ago. Join the nearly 225 individuals who have already contributed to the new Lee Lynch & Terry Saario Innovation Fund with a gift to help MinnPost grow, innovate, and expand our coverage of important regional and national issues.
