4th Annual Home Plate Gala

It’s hard to believe we are into full planning mode for the 4th Annual Home Plate Gala. It seems like just yesterday we were having fun at the last gala. This year’s gala will be held on Saturday, January 30th at the Marriott Minneapolis Northwest. Look for your “Save the Date” cards in the mail in early October, with information on registration.

Our theme for this year is “Where the Heart Is.” The mission of Crescent Cove that we are supporting is in every way from the heart. The experience for those that have spent time at or visited children’s hospices around the world is one of compassion and love – it is ‘Where the heart is.’

Our key message for this event is to learn more about what a hospice/respite facility will do for our families caring for children with life-limiting conditions in the Midwest. Messages will be shared from other people working at children’s hospice and respite homes in the UK, Australia and Canada, so that we can all become more familiar with all of these remarkable places across the world – and bring to fruition this much needed home for families here in our community.

Our Home Plate committee will surely have another beautiful evening for us all to come together to enjoy delicious food, exciting auction items, great company, poignant moments, and excellent entertainment – all to benefit Crescent Cove and our mission to support children and young adults with a shortened life expectancy, and their families. We are so grateful for your never-ending support of our mission to build a children’s hospice/respite home. It has been a journey to say the least, but the need grows stronger every day and we will find a way to succeed with your generosity.

Be sure to register and invite your friends to join us at our 4th Annual Home Plate: Where the Heart is! See you in January!
