Announcing 2018 Party in the Park Presenting Sponsor: Walser Subaru

Walser Subaru

Walser Subaru is returning as our 2018 Party in the Park Presenting Sponsor. Jeff Holmquist, general manager of Walser Subaru in Burnsville, said he is very pleased with the partnership between their dealership and Rein in Sarcoma.

“Rein in Sarcoma is a unique grassroots organization that brings together to sarcoma community throughout the Midwest” said Holmquist, “We are proud of the work of this incredible organization to educate, support and fund cures for this dreadful disease."

“Last year’s sponsorship using the proceeds from Subaru’s ‘Share the Love Event’ worked extraordinarily well for both our dealership and Rein in Sarcoma, so we again chose RIS to benefit from last December’s Subaru Share the Love Campaign.”

“We are very grateful for their continued support,” said Frank Miske III, chair of the 2018 Party, “and we are especially grateful to Jeff and his family for his commitment and support of our efforts to benefit our sarcoma cancer community”.

As a part of their support, Jeff and his family established the RIS Lora Holmquist Named Fund in 2016 to honor the memory of Jeff’s first wife who died from Epithelioid Sarcoma in 2006. You can read Lora's story.
