PartyOnStillwater Under New Ownership




Stillwater, MN, October 31, 2017– PartyOnStillwater, a local event and wedding planning company, is now under new ownership. PartyOnStillwater was founded by Robin Anthony in 2011, after leaving a corporate position to work locally, and give back to the community. Ms. Anthony, who is also the Executive Director of the Greater Stillwater Chamber of Commerce, has decided to sell PartyOnStillwater to focus solely on the Chamber, and embrace the quality of life.

“This was a tough decision and has been bittersweet for me. I built this business from the ground up, created a respected brand, built lasting business partnerships, and developed an increased passion for our community,” says Anthony.

PartyOnStillwater services includes full event management, from the inception of the planning, to just being onsite the day-of assisting the host. Graduation parties, corporate events, family celebrations, fundraisers, golf tournaments, and of course weddings, to name a few of the most popular events. The wedding coordination is branded PartyOnWeddings, and focuses on wedding management and works in partnership with other wedding vendors. PartyOnBartending adds to the complete event experience, and the rental inventory consists of tables, chairs, décor, games, tents, and much, much, more. PartyOnStillwater is located conveniently across the High School on Memorial Avenue North.

Stillwater native, John Donahue has purchased the business and will take ownership on November 1, 2017. Mr. Donahue has been in the hospitality industry for over 25 years, and was a General Manager for the Famous Dave’s in Stillwater for 12 of those years. He has established numerous relationships in the business, and has a great passion for his home town. He loves serving people, and is excited to serve the community, and continue the PartyOn brand. John lives in Oak-Park Heights with his Fiancé Jenny and their five children.

“I am excited and up for the challenge”, says Donahue. “Growing up here, and owning a local business, is a dream I have had since I was a kid.”

PartyOnStillwater’s tagline is, Life is Short. PartyOn! Now it’s time for Anthony to take her own advice and pass the baton. The theory behind the tagline is, life is short, enjoy it, hire us, let us serve you, rent from us, enjoy your day, your event, your relationships, make lasting memories… because Life is Short. PartyOn! Donahue and Anthony have been, and will continue to work together for an easy transition.

“John has love and respect for Stillwater, and is equipped to take PartyOnStillwater to the next level,” says Anthony. “PartyOnStillwater fills a gap of local services, and I wish him the absolute best!”
