- Announcing: The North Stands x Jeb Taylor Auction
We are excited to announce a new collaboration with Jeb Taylor Knives. Jeb came to us wanting to help, and donated one of his amazing pieces for The North Stands to help the restaurant industry. Jeb Taylor started making knives after serving in the US Army for over 20 years. Each of his knives are designed and forged locally here in Minnesota. Jeb created a custom knife for The North Stands, and it is perfect for any chef, collector, butcher, or foodie. We will be hosting a Silent Auction for this Jeb Taylor Knife, and all of the proceeds from this auction will go toward feeding the community, and rebuilding a local business that was damaged during the protests. The Auction will be live tomorrow at 11:00 am, and will end Monday at 7:00 pm. Visit the link in our bio for more info, and good luck!
At The North Stands, our mission is to help the hospitality industry in Minnesota Thrive amidst hardship. We see this industry as an integral part of our community, and are dedicated in providing aid wherever it is needed the most. The North Stands was launched as bars and restaurants began to shut down in Minnesota due to COVID-19, and there was a growing need for hospitality worker support. As we grow and move forward, we will continue to help the hospitality industry, and the community, by feeding families in need, and rebuilding a business that has been damaged by the protests here in the city.
