Belzer in the Community: February 2024 Highlights

March 4th, 2024 by

Table Signage Annual Dinner


Although February is the shortest month of the year, it was packed full of community events here at Jeff Belzer’s. It was a time to extend our love and support to the communities that we cherish. In this month’s update, we are excited to share the events that we supported, including Lakeville Chamber of Commerce’s Annual Dinner, Charlie’s on Prior Beer & BBQ Fest, Lakeville North Hockey, and the Holy Cross Crusader Celebration.


Lakeville Chamber of Commerce Annual Dinner 

Every year, the Lakeville Area Chamber of Commerce holds their Annual Dinner, designed to honor and celebrate the businesses and community that make Lakeville thrive. Jeff Belzer’s was honored to be a sponsor of the 2024 Annual Dinner, held at the Holiday Inn & Suites. It was a great night of connecting, networking, and listening to the impressive 2023 recap and exciting plans for 2024. There was also an award ceremony to honor the outstanding individuals and businesses that are influential to our community. Congratulations to the following awardees: 

  • 2023 Businessperson of the Year: Bob Curtus, Bob Curtis Agency Farmer’s Insurance 
  • Community Business Partner: Lakeville Lions 
  • Tourism Business Partner: Buck Hill Ski & Snowboard 
  • Education Business Partner: Pro Tech Automotive 
  • Ambassador of the Year: RJ Cetnarowski, New Market Bank 
  • Volunteer of the Year: Tammy Gruidl, MOR Golf & Utility 

Lakeville would not be the stellar city it is without your support, and we thank you for your hard work and dedication. 2023 marked the 75th year of the Chamber’s existence. Here’s to another 75 years of advancement, success, and growth!


Charlie’s on Prior Beer & BBQ Fest 

Typically, the Beer & BBQ Fest held at Charlie’s on Prior would take place on the ice. However, this year has been unusually warm, so the event was not able to be held on the lake. Despite the change, the event was an amazing success. Year after year, Beer & BBQ Fest continues to grow in size and popularity. Many beverage vendors are set up and offer free samples to attendees. There are also samples of Charlie’s pulled pork along with sandwiches and wings to purchase. It is a perfect way to spend a winter Saturday! Jeff Belzer’s was a sponsor of the event – watch the video below for a sneak peek into the fun. 


Lakeville North Boys Hockey Heads & Tails Game Sponsor at Valentine’s Social 

Jeff Belzer’s has always been a proud supporter of a variety of youth sports, and this month, we will highlight Lakeville North Boys Hockey. Their annual Valentine Social is the biggest fundraiser of the year and proceeds are used to offset the costs associated with running the hockey program. It was held in early February and Jeff Belzer’s was a sponsor of their Heads & Tails game. Currently, their record is 21-7 – incredible work, team! The end of the hockey season is quickly approaching, and we hope it was a great season. 


Holy Cross Crusader Celebration 

Holy Cross Catholic School in Webster is dedicated to excellence in education and the promotion of innovative academics, joyful service, and spiritual and character development. Every year, they hold the Holy Cross Crusader Celebration, which is a celebratory night of games, dinner, raffles, and a silent and live auction. The proceeds from the auctions go towards furthering their mission statement and always have great attendance. Jeff Belzer’s was a Silver sponsor and enjoyed attending in support of their organization.
