Pretzels with the Praedels: A Fundraiser with a Twist

Join us for our 1st Annual Pretzels with the Praedels backyard campaign fundraiser. This event is the key fundraiser for our 2019 City Commission campaign and will be instrumental to provide "the dough" necessary to reach voters through the mail and at doors. 

Our boys are obsessed with soft pretzels (and so are we). So we figured why not make an event out of it?! And who doesn't love a cheesy alliteration? The Praedels are opening their backyard with homemade soft pretzels and sauces. We've handpicked a selection of cold summer beverages, including Olde Peninsula Root Beer.

Date and time:

Sunday, July 28

4 to 5:30 p.m.

A short and family-friendly outdoor event with lawn games and music. Remarks at 4:45 p.m.
