TWIN CITIES BUD BOWL EVENT CONTRIBUTES $150,000 TO MINNESOTA PROGRAMS
 MINNEAPOLIS, Feb. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Budweiser will contribute $150,000 to two Minnesota programs as a result of the Twin Cities Bud Bowl event conducted during Super Bowl XXVI festivities.
 The Hennepin County Educational Foundation today formally received a check for $100,000, which was the rental amount Anheuser-Busch, Inc., paid to Hennepin County for use of the Washington Avenue lot directly across the street from the Metrodome.
 Proceeds from the Twin Cities Bud Bowl beer sales, earmarked for the Minnesota Food Shelf Association, came to approximately $37,000. Budweiser has made an additional $13,000 contribution, bringing the net total for the Food Shelf to $50,000.
 The contribution to the Food Shelf is one of the largest in the agency's history.
 "We wanted to do something for the residents of the Twin Cities so they could take part in all the Super Bowl excitement," said Stephen J. Burrows, vice president brand management for Anheuser-Busch. "This event truly was an effort to reward our loyal Budweiser drinkers in the area, provided an opportunity for nearly a dozen local companies to employ almost 350 workers, and held raise money for two worth charitable Minnesota organizations."
 Twin Cities Bud Bowl was held Jan. 24-26 and was among the largest open-to-the-public festivities conducted, with 3,500 tickets distributed for each day.
