From 8 p.m. tonight, Friday, April 8, to 2 a.m. Saturday, Up ’til Dawn will host its annual grand finale with free food, giveaways, live music and “tons” of entertainment in the Anderson Athletic and Recreation Complex field house.

Celebrate all that UST fundraising efforts have accomplished for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Included will be henna tattoos, wax hands, mini golf, casino tables and horseracing. Music will be provided by local bands Lotus Eaters and Asker. Food will be provided throughout the night from Noodles, Bruegger’s, Baker’s Square and other eateries.

Everyone who attends will receive a free Up ’til Dawn cinch bag and be eligible for prizes, which include a free semester of books, Minnesota Twins tickets, a Mall of America day package, free massages, and gift cards for restaurants and businesses throughout the Twin Cities.

Winners must be present and have a UST ID.

If you didn’t have a chance to send letters in the fall to help the kids of St. Jude, there’s still time. Bring names and addresses to the finale and sit down to address letters. Once you finish, join the celebration.
