    The 2016 awards program included a live performance by the Highland Park High School Dance Team. Dunkers provided funding for new uniforms for the team.

    Dave Mona, Dunkers head trainer and master of ceremonies for the awards program, announced that member sharing in 2016 set another new record.

Twin Cities Dunkers Fund

In response to reports that Minneapolis and St. Paul public high school athletic programs were massively underfunded, the Twin Cities Dunkers in 2011 created the Twin Cities Dunkers Fund to provide targeted assistance to 14 high schools in the two cities.

Working in conjunction with The Minneapolis Foundation, the new Dunker Fund has been able to direct more than $466,000 to the schools. The money has been used to purchase equipment and uniforms, to improve athletic facilities and enable road trips.
