About 560 attendees at the 2011 Diamond Awards at Target Field celebrated the Minnesota Twins’ outstanding season while also supporting lifesaving research and care at the University of Minnesota.

This year’s sold-out event raised $224,000 to advance the University’s innovative research into and treatments for ataxia, muscular dystrophy, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, and ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease). Since its inception six years ago, the event has raised more than $2 million.
