Auggie Night at the Races

Augsburg alumni, family, and friends are invited to join in the fun at our annual Augsburg Night at Canterbury Park as special guests of Curt Sampson, Canterbury Park owner and current member of the Augsburg Board of Regents.

Guests will receive free admission and a complimentary dinner buffet. Fun for all ages; come enjoy the exciting horse races, including one specifically for Augsburg! Canterbury Park is located at 1100 Canterbury Rd., Shakopee, MN 55379.

As in years past, attendees are asked to donate needed supplies for the Augsburg Central Nursing Center. For nearly 20 years, the Augsburg Nursing Program has operated a free health clinic for the homeless at Central Lutheran Church in downtown Minneapolis. Basic supplies are needed to continue to serve the 1,400 patients each year. When you come out to Canterbury Park, please consider bringing soap, toothpaste, adult socks, diapers, Tylenol, ibuprofen, cold medication, ointments, or Band-Aids. Your donation will allow our nursing students to continue this important service-learning experience.

Alumni City Service Day

Service-minded participants volunteering on their own or with groups of family and friends work with Augsburg to organize service sites around the world. The event provides a cohesive and organized global effort to further the ethic of service encouraged and demonstrated by the Auggie family. It also offers a unique opportunity for current Augsburg College students to work with alumni—and for alumni to reconnect with their former classmates while giving back to their communities. The tangible impact on each community and the magnitude of volunteerism defines the day.
