Be A Friend Luncheon

HFC hosts the Be A Friend Luncheon annually in the spring to enlist the help of local community members to support HFC programs. With the help of DeGidio’s Restaurant and Bar, HFC Table Captains invite their families and friends to experience what the organization is all about while HFC members, staff and Board members share their passion for the Friendship Club. Over this delicious lunch, the HFC community grows as new volunteers and donors alike are recruited to join in on the fun!

Community Picnic-Sunday

Every summer, the entire community is invited to come together in Highland Park for a fun day of celebrating the Highland Friendship Club community. This is a celebration of HFC members, parents, caregivers, volunteers, staff and more! The intent is for everyone to come together in a casual setting on a beautiful summer day to enjoy one another's company. HFC is truly blessed with a huge community of support... don't miss you chance to join us for this free event!

The Really Big Game

Come Cheer Us On! Each year, the Highland Area Baseball Association hosts HFC members under the big lights at the Highland Little League Fields as they play in The Really Big Game. The Really Big Game is just that: a huge game of baseball in which HFC members, coached by volunteers, play against one another while the crowd watches! The St. Paul Saints baseball team serve as the evening’s announcers whilst playing organ music and cheering on HFC members alongside their enthusiastic supporters.



Lanes for Friendship

Highland Friendship Club's biggest fundraiser of the year, Lanes for Friendship, is one event you don't want to miss! Sponsors of the event get the opportunity to have lunch and bowl with celebrity guest Joe Mauer and other special guests such as Paul Molitor of the Minnesota Twins at Bowlero in Lakeville. HFC members enjoy a private Meet and Greet with Joe before they try their hand at bowling. A silent auction and raffle for grand prizes contribute to an afternoon celebration of fun and friendship.

"HFC you’re the best, you rock!
HFC has helped me focus on some of my hobbies... I have met some cool people and great leaders. Some of my favorite programs are Glee Club, tennis, Girl's Night Out, and cooking class. I love the field trips like the ball games too! And thank you HFC for all the fun times... it means the world to me!"
