We’re in the middle of our busiest season at the Bullseye—and it’s the perfect time to give back to the communities we serve. Recently, we partnered with some familiar faces to bring holiday joy to our hometown and beyond.

So we joined forces with two of the area’s major sports teams for some holiday-cheer-spreading events.A Minnesota Twins player greets childrenFirst, we teamed up with the Minnesota Twins to transform Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare into a winter wonderland, complete with gingerbread house making, a pop-up book shop, a snow-fueled activity zone (including a glitter slime station) and elves handing out gifts to patients and their families. Minnesota Twins players were also on hand to take pictures and visit with guests.Minnesota Timberwolves players shop with a little boyNext up, we helped the Minnesota Timberwolves pull off a major holiday surprise. The team, along with United Heroes league, surprised 14 kids and their families—all with parents deployed for military service overseas—with $500 Target shopping sprees at our Roseville, Minnesota, store. The families left with one more surprise—an additional $500 Target GiftCard for assistance with the rest of the holiday season.
