Wild About Children

Join us Sunday, February 16th, 2020 at Xcel Energy Center for the Wild About Children event presented by West Bend. This is the premier fundraising event for the Minnesota Wild Foundation and promises guests a unique opportunity to make lasting memories while mixing and mingling with the entire roster of the 2019-20 Minnesota Wild. Wild About Children benefits the Minnesota Wild Foundation and its premier community partner, Children's Minnesota. Funds from this season's fete will go to support Children's Fetal Cardiology program. 

During the event reception prior to dinner, guests will have the chance to enjoy a specialty cocktail mixed by your favorite Wild bartender, Zach Parise, nibble fancy hors d' oeuvres passed by Wild celebrity waiters, and peruse an amazing silent auction filled with unique sports memorabilia and other exciting packages. Guests will also have a chance to snap photos and get autographs from their favorite Wild players. The team will go above and beyond when they swap their hockey sticks for serving trays as they present guests with a delicious winter meal. We hope you will join us for an extraordinary night with your Minnesota Wild while supporting Children's Minnesota and the Wild Foundation. Together we create a greater State of Hockey!

Since the first event in 2003, the Minnesota Wild Foundation's annual gala, Wild About Children, has raised over $2.3 million for charity with more than $1.5 million benefitting Children's Minnesota. The December 2018 gathering took place on the floor of Xcel Energy Center, presented by West Bend, raised more than $230,000 with a portion of proceeds going to support the heart transplant program at Children's Minnesota. The remaining funds supported Wild Foundation initiatives that grow the game of hockey and support children's medical related causes.
