Every year MNCAR hosts a charitable golf event for brokers. This year 144 brokers attended the event at Legends Golf Club in Prior Lake. The day is full of eating, drinking, prizes and a lot of face-to-face networking. Although the team did get wet, a little rain wont stop Paramount brokers from enjoying a fun day of golf!

Bielenberg Holiday Breakfast | December 2017

On December 14th, 2017 Paramount along with the owners of 500 Bielenberg, Pat and Angie Gorham, hosted a Holiday Breakfast for our tenants. 500 Bielenberg Drive in Woodbury is one of the properties that we manage from maintenance issues to rent payments, etc. We decided that it was time we hosted a Holiday Breakfast to show some appreciation to our tenants and i tell you what.. we had a great turn out. The food line seemed to be steady the majority of the entire time which we were thrilled about. We were so appreciative to everyone who came and took their time to say hello and join in for the breakfast, and so pleased with everyone who helped out and made this event possible. Out of the 1,300 tenants we estimated that about 1,000 joined for breakfast which we were very happy about! We also had a Harpist, Laurie Leigh, come out to perform for everyone. She was a great addition to the event and created just the holiday mood that we had hoped for. We are so pleased with this turn out and can’t wait to host this event again in 2018!

Feed My Starving Children Outing

Paramount employees and friends spent an afternoon volunteering at Feed My Starving Children in Chanhassen, Minnesota on Thursday, September 7, 2017.  We were able to package 78 boxes containing 16,848 meals.  Paramount volunteers hand-packed MannaPack Rice, an excellent source of protein, carbohydrates and key nutrients culturally acceptable worldwide for anyone over the age of one.  The meals contained rice, soy, dried vegetables and a nutritionally complete blend of vitamins and minerals into bags which are then sealed, boxed, placed on pallets and shipped to partners working hard to reach the neediest children around the world.  The meals we prepared were shipped to Haiti.
