CenterPoint Energy has long been committed to help keeping your homes warm. For 145 years, theyâ€™ve provided safe, reliable natural gasâ€”an important element of a Minnesota winter.
And for the second straight year, CenterPoint Energy will be doing the same through a warming tent at Holidazzle.
Throughout this yearâ€™s event, CenterPoint Energy will be the proud sponsor of Holidazzleâ€™s ice rink warming tent as well as the corresponding beer tent. As a company that values its customers and its community, CenterPoint Energy is excited about the opportunity to give back and help create an extraordinary experience for Holidazzle-goers throughout November and December.
â€œThe most enjoyable part of participating in Holidazzle and sponsoring the events is seeing members of the community and our employees come together and celebrate the beautiful downtown city of Minneapolis,â€ said Becca Virden, Manager of Public Relations for CenterPoint Energy. â€œThe company feels privileged to be part of the city of Minneapolisâ€™ largest winter celebration each year in a home to a great community of people. Our employees are proud to live, work and volunteer in the communities that the company serves every day, and the Holidazzle reminds us that this is a special time each year that allows us to give back to the community.â€
This yearâ€™s Holidazzle runs Thursdays through Sundays from Friday, November 27 through Sunday, December 20. It will be open on Thursdays and Fridays from 5 pm-9 pm and on Saturdays and Sundays from 11 am-9 pm. Itâ€™s a Winter Wonderland located in Loring Park, one that will include another important piece of Minnesotaâ€™s winter fabricâ€”an ice rink for all ages to enjoy in the heart of the downtown area.
CenterPoint Energy will ensure that whether youâ€™re looking to take a break from your time on the ice or if youâ€™re looking for a heated spot to warm up during all the fun and festivities, there will be a place for you to go throughout your Holidazzle experience.
For CenterPoint Energy, itâ€™s exciting to be part of the fun.
â€œHolidazzle is a tradition, and it is a go-to destination for all Minnesotans and visitors to our state,â€ Virden said. â€œIt is where attendees can experience a lot of fun, safe activities that they can share and enjoy together during the holiday season.â€
When it comes to giving back, this is a year-round venture for CenterPoint Energy. Theyâ€™ve been recognized for their efforts in being the community-minded company in its industry through The Civic 50, an annual initiative that identifies and recognizes companies for their commitment to improving the quality of life in the communities in which they do business.
Virden said the connection between CenterPoint Energy, giving back to the community and Holidazzle makes great sense. She said being able to share the experience with one another makes for a stronger community and offers a chance to showcase the benefits of using natural gas as well as how to use it safely.
It ensures those who attend Holidazzle will feel the warmth of the holiday while also, if need be, enjoying the warmth of a heated on-site tent.
â€œTo celebrate Minneapolis and the people who live in it,â€ Virden said, â€œCenterPoint Energy is pleased to be able to be a participating sponsor of one of Minneapolisâ€™ largest winter festivities, which will provide safe, quality entertainment for all.â€
