Mike Leverty, Foundation board member, and his wife Hailley enjoy an evening of wine and celebration in support of the Foundation fundraising. The Leverty Financial Group of Hudson announced a new partnership with Minnesota Vikings Pro Bowl Linebacker, Chad Greenway. The wine event special appeal raised over $7,000 for the newly developed pediatric fund supporting a purchase of "Chad's Locker."
Hospital Foundation Annual Around the World Wine Event a success
The hospital foundation's wine event, sponsored by Knotty Vines, was extremely successful on November 9 at Hudson House Grand Hotel with over 230 people in attendance. The live and silent auctions alone raised over $10,000 with local auctioneer, John Knutson. John also led our first effort in raising money directly from the event crowd. The effort, which is called a special appeal, raised over $7,000 for the newly developed pediatric fund which will support the purchase of "Chad's Locker" − a life-sized locker filled with electronics for young patients and their families to borrow during their medical visit or stay. The locker program is made possible through a new partnership with Minnesota Viking Chad Greenway and his foundation, Lead The Way. Thanks to all who donated to the foundation and supported our annual wine event!
