Last year, MNLGLL attendees heard a great speech from former New York Ranger goaltender, Steve Valiquette. Just like last year, everyone's breakfast will be served by our very own Little Leaguers.

All of the proceeds of this event will go to MNLGLL.

This event will sell out and is first-come first-serve.
