Each year, LHiNC’s Silent Auction at the Linden Hills Festival features dozens of prizes from generous donors in and around the community. The prizes are seen by many of the 3000+ festival goers; prizes and donors are also featured in an online auction, on LHiNC’s website and in The Linden Hills Line newsletter.
Funds raised through the auction are then invested in:
- Building Community – LHiNC funds and organizes events to bring our community together, including the annual Festival, Taste of Linden Hills, Little Homes Tour and more. We also produce and distribute the community newsletter The Line and maintain the community website and Facebook page.
- Protecting the Environment – LHiNC’s Environmental Committee is very active. Projects include: a solar garden, tree planting, bicycle rack installation, local park beautification, sponsoring an HourCar, environmental education and more.
- Supporting Arts and Education – Through its bi-annual grants program, LHiNC has provided funding for: college scholarships, tutoring programs, school and community music and theater programs. We also sponsored the annual Art Shanty Projects’ On-Ice Program at Lake Harriet. This event featured 22 interactive art shanties designed and built by local artists.
