The Arena Sale has become so much more than a school fundraiser: it is a family fun event and a time when the Minnehaha community comes together to put on a market with meaning.



The Arena Sale is a Market with Meaning:

  • Minnehaha families and community members donate gently used and new items to benefit a great cause.
  • People travel from all over the Twin Cities and even Wisconsin annually to shop for high quality, low cost re-purposed items.
  • Churches shop for items they can use in their own ministries such as community clothes closets.
  • Community nonprofit partners take unsold items and distribute them through their programs in local neighborhoods to those in need. Some items, such as shoes, are sent as far away as Africa.
