It is a difficult yet rewarding process every year to review the hundreds of Cities 97 Sampler grant applications. Our charity committee thanks the thousands of Cities 97 listeners who took our 'community need' survey and provided the guide for making our selections. The application window for the forthcoming Cities 97 Sampler Volume 24 will open June 6th.

Please join us in congratulating these non-profit organizations that work tirelessly to serve children, animals and adults in need throughout Minnesota and will share in the nearly $800,000 raised by last year's Cities 97 Sampler Volume 23:
