Help us strengthen ties between Minnesotans and citizens around the world by donating to Minneapolis and Tours Sister Cities!
For a quarter century, Minneapolis and Tours Sister Cities has reached across the ocean to engage young and old alike to reinforce the bonds of friendship with Minnesotans and residents of this French city located an hour southwest of Paris. As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization run entirely by volunteers, we rely solely on the donations of individuals like you to help fulfill our mission. This year, we celebrated our 25th anniversary as sister cities and welcomed a delegation from Tours in July.
Here are some of our upcoming events:
• Minnesota will showcase our great state as we will be the guest of honor at the 2017 Foire de Tours, in Tours, France, an event similar to our State Fair. The Foire de Tours hosts about 300,000 visitors annually with more than 700 exhibitors, as well as concerts, entertainment, gourmet foods, demonstrations and more. We will showcase some Minnesota businesses, highlights of our history and cultural heritage.
• Tours will promote 2017 as the year of America and we are planning a number of artistic and cultural exchanges. This will also commemorate the 100th anniversary of the 1917 United States establishment of a pilot training facility in Tours during World War I.
Your support will help us accomplish these projects and more! Learn more about the Foire de Tours and our plans by visiting our website at http://mplstours.org. All contributions are 100% tax deductible. Thank you to all of our donors for your ongoing support!
