ST. PAUL, Minn. (WCCO) – Minnesota Wild players are taking off their helmets and taking orders.
On Monday evening, they became celebrity waiters at the “Wild About Children” fundraiser.
St. Paul’s Union Depot was transformed in to a fancy restaurant for the event, which benefits Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota.
Skater-turned-waiter Mikko Koivu says his serving skills trump those of his teammates.
“Each and every year I get better,” Koivu said. “It’s a fun event.”
Koivu, the current captain of the Wild, says the event is very important to the team.
“We’re fortunate we can help the children’s hospitals,” he said.
In addition to the meal, there was also a silent auction.
