Cal-Tex was once again honored at The Diamond Awards in late January for its support of research to find a cure for neurological diseases. The Diamond Awards are hosted every year to celebrate our home town heroes – The Minnesota Twins – and raise money and awareness to support research by the University of Minnesota for ALS, Ataxia, Muscular Dystrophy, Multiple Sclerosis and Parkinson’s disease.

This year, Cal-Tex was honored to be a Home Run sponsor. The money raised at this great event goes directly to medical teams at the U of M’s Medical School that are passionate and dedicated to find a cure for neurological diseases.

Among the Diamond Awards presented to Twins’ players were a pair to Joe Mauer, who announced his retirement at the end of last season. Mauer was awarded the Bob Allison Award for Twins Leadership and the Dick Siebert Award as the Upper Midwest Player of the Year.

10 Cal-tex employees attend

Ten employees from Cal-Tex and their significant others attended the award ceremony on January 24, 2019. Among those attending were Matt Arends, Cal-Tex Vice President, who is very passionate about the charity and attends every year. The event took place at the Renaissance Minneapolis Hotel known as The Depot.

The evening started with a group photo and cocktails, and then bidding on an array of silent auction prizes. Dinner and the awards ceremony followed, and then the Cal-Tex group had the opportunity to get a picture with the players. Cathy, Cal-Tex’s Office Manager, is a huge Twins fan and was able to get a picture with Joe Mauer, plus several other players. The ladies of Cal-Tex even pulled Max Kepler aside to snap a group picture.

What a great evening of Cal-Tex camaraderie, philanthropy and fun! Go Twins! Go University of Minnesota!
