Swank Soles

Dust off your vintage soles or buff up your new kicks. The Swank Soles Competition is your claim to shoe-stardom. Winners will be crowned in each of the three divisions: men’s, women’s, and group. Our event hosts will pick the top contenders in each category, while the audience chooses the winners!


Back again by popular demand, Tim Mahoney will be providing the soundtrack for this year’s event. He’s been delighting Minnesota music crowds for more than 15 years now, and gained fame appearing in an early season of The Voice in 2011. Tim’s also made a habit of playing gigs around town focused on giving back to the community, and we appreciate him choosing to lend his talents to support Meals on Wheels!

We’re excited to welcome Rob Hudson as our emcee the evening’s festivities. You may be familiar with Rob from his time at KARE11 as both an anchor and reporter or from his time as play-by-play announcer for University of Wisconsin and St. Cloud State men’s hockey. Thanks to Rob for lending his voice to this year’s event!
