News from the State Fair Foundation

Greetings from your North Dakota State Fair Foundation!

Since the beginning of the Foundation, nearly 18 months ago, the Foundation has received more than $50,000 in donations from Fairgoers across the region.  The donations continue to come in, as just in the past four months we have received over $15,000 – thank you!

The Foundation is gearing up for the 2012 Fair.  We will have a multi-artist signed guitar raffle, with a limited amount of $10 tickets.  The guitar was signed at last year’s CMA awards by a variety of artists There will be more information about the raffle on the Foundation website in the near future.

We continue with our “Tile the Atrium” program.  You can have a tile named after your family, business, or loved one that has passed.  We have started installing tiles and will continue with this program until we get the Atrium finished.  It not only helps the Fair get an area upgraded, it also generates revenue for the Foundation.

The Foundation will continue to work on behalf of its sole mission to support the Fair.  Over time, we see the Foundation playing an important role with long term giving, grants, and charitable contributions.

For information on the Foundation, go to our website at or call the Fair office at 701-857-7620.

THANK YOU for supporting your Fair Foundation and to the Foundation Board and staff for helping to make this happen.

Keep on giving to YOUR Fair!

Todd Berning
