Fertile, Minn. (December 4, 2012) – For the past 23 years, people in need have been able to go to the Duluth Entertainment and Convention Center and receive a free turkey dinner on Thanksgiving. This year more than 5,000 people showed up to eat food donated by local farmers and served by volunteers. On hand to help with the event on the eve of the ISOC Duluth National Snocross were eight members of the Christian Brothers Racing team.
“We started out the race weekend by volunteering to serve thanksgiving dinner at the DECC,” said Christian Brothers Racing co-owner Dwight Christian. “There were eight of us and we worked a five-hour stint. Helping out with the event makes our Thanksgiving away from home a lot brighter, for sure.”
The annual Twin Ports Thanksgiving Buffet is produced by Twin Ports community volunteers and the College of St Scholastica. It takes place in the Edmund Fitzgerald Exhibit Hall in the DECC’s City Side Convention Center. An estimated 5,000 meals were served on site and another 1,000 were delivered to home-bound recipients.
