SUFK Sponsors Valleyfair Field Trip

The Stand Up For Kids Foundation was the proud sponsor for this year's Park Center Senior High Valleyfair Field Trip. 100 students were rewarded for their efforts in school with a trip to Valley Fair. The students, 10th, 11th, and 12th graders, were taken to Valleyfair where they enjoyed a full day of rides, games, a grill out lunch, and of course FUN!

For most students this was their first time to experience Valleyfair; while also giving students the opportunity to be kids and enjoy the outdoors. Some of the kids that attended were also affected by the tornadoes in North Minneapolis, giving them a few hours of peace where they didn't have to worry about some of their problems at home.

The Stand Up For Kids Foundation would like to thank Park Center Senior High for allowing us to be a part of this year's Valleyfair field trip. We are grateful for the school's and student's support and gratitude. We look forward to working with Park Center again in the future.


"We want to sincerely thank Cedric Griffin and the Stand Up For Kids Foundation for sponsoring this year's Valleyfair Field Trip. Without their support the event would not have taken place. You have made a huge impact in our student's lives and we greatly appreciate your involvement with the school." -Rosalind Bakion, Park Center High School

Stand Up for Kids Foundation Inaugural Fundraising Dinner a Resounding Success

On Friday, April 15th 2011, the Stand Up For Kids Foundation held its inaugural Fundraiser Dinner at Wildfire in Eden Prairie, Minnesota. The special evening featured esteemed speakers, an enticing comedic emcee and professional football players Cedric Griffin and Casey Hampton who were joined by approximately 70 donors and supporters who together raised over $15,000 to support Stand Up for Kids and its programs.

The pre-dinner social hour was abuzz with people from all walks of life showing support of the Stand Up For Kids Foundation which provides opportunities for the youth in the local communities. The delicious appetizers fed the guests while they learned about each other, the organization, took pictures, had footballs autographed and made bids on the silent auction items.
