For the seventh year, Minnesota Utility Contractors Association (MUCA) hosted the Day of the Dozers charity event and raised $59,657 for Children’s Minnesota. Over the course of these seven years, MUCA has raised a total of $257,454 in donations to support families struggling with childhood healthcare issues. The funds raised support Children’s Child and Family Services, the Concussion Clinic and the Annual Day of Giving.
The event was held on September 28 in ERX Motor Park in Elk River, MN, and began with a safety briefing and operator instructions to ensure the kids have a safe and fun day. An extraordinary amount of equipment was donated this year. We increased the number of lines to reduce wait times, had a great variety of food trucks, and provided an educational 811 Kids Zone to raise awareness about safety around utilities and the “Call Before You Dig” message.
None of this would be possible without the small army of volunteers it takes to make everything run smoothly! MUCA wishes to express its gratitude to all the sponsors, donors, volunteers, the dozens of operators and construction companies, and the attendees for making this event a tremendous success!
