was the winningest coach in team history.

The cost of the dinner is $100 and reservations must be made by August 31st. For reservations contact Liz Paulson at 312-4522 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org
The banquet is one of three events that will be held on September 15th and 16th with all the money raised going to the Morrie Miller Athletic Foundation, which benefits youth athletics in Winona. A 5K run/walk will be held on that Saturday morning and then a golf tournament will be played on Sunday. Pre-race registration for the 5K can be done at active.com or you can register the morning of the event.
