The Big Event raises nearly $35,000


Nearly $35,000 was raised through The Big Event, a fundraising effort headed by the Brainerd Public School Foundation (BPSF).

“It was a tremendous night for the foundation in all facets,” said Eryk Haapajoki, event chair and BPSF Board Member.

The Big Event, which was conducted Saturday, originated because BPSF leaders have long wanted a signature event for the foundation, an annual event that serves as its largest fundraiser and most visible way to promote its mission.
