How many times did you say “I can’t wait for the end of July to attend Dough 4 Joe!” Well, for those of you that attended, we hope it was everything you thought it would be and more!
This year we were at our new location, and it was absolutely AWESOME there is just no other way to put it! Dough 4 Joe has officially outgrown the side streets and city park of Elizabeth, MN. Thank you Elizabeth for hosting us all those years, we will never forget our roots, but the Viking Challenge/Ringdahl location was more than we could have ever imagined.
This year, we were able to hold our first ever 2 day event we opened the gates at 12n on Friday, July 25 and hosted 3 bands on Friday and 4 bands on Saturday. There was more than enough room for camping, and it was proven by the overwhelming number of campers and tents that pulled in for the weekends festivities! We had over 450 registered riders for the fun run, and over 50 campers/tents. Many attendees said it was their first time attending and they were so impressed; they will be back with their campers next year. Even those multiple year veterans were impressed. We heard nothing but overwhelmingly good comments and we were once again successful in raising funds for our recipients.
Thanks to everyone that volunteered, donated, sponsored, and attended this year’s event. We hope to see you all back for our10th annual run in 2015 – be sure to bring your friends! Check out the Dough 4 Joe 2014 pictures on our website!
