The Wild will host Wild About Children, presented by West Bend, to benefit the Minnesota Wild Foundation and Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota at 6 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 1, at A’BULAE in St. Paul. In its 10-year history, Wild About Children has contributed more than $939,000 to benefit Children’s of Minnesota.
This will be the first time Wild About Children is being held at A’BULAE. More information about Wild About Children can be found here.
The entire Wild roster will serve as celebrity waiters and trade in their jerseys for aprons to wait on more than 320 guests expected (a new event record). The event raises money through several fundraising vehicles, including a silent and live auction.
The Minnesota Wild Foundation exists to support the game of hockey and to improve the lives of families in the State of Hockey.
Last season, the event raised $162,000 for the Minnesota Wild Foundation and Children’s of Minnesota.
Since its inception in 2000, the Minnesota Wild has invested $10,600,000 back into the community. The organization has provided autographed and non-autographed merchandise for local fundraisers and benefits, made contributions to non-profit organizations, implemented successful events and provided awareness and brand connectivity for smaller non-profit organizations.
About Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota
Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota is one of the largest pediatric health systems in the United States and the only health system in Minnesota to provide care exclusively to children, from before birth through young adulthood. An independent and not-for-profit system since 1924, Children’s serves kids throughout the Upper Midwest at two free-standing hospitals, 12 primary and specialty-care clinics and six rehabilitation sites. Children’s maintains its longstanding commitment to the community to improve children’s health by providing high-quality, family-centered pediatric services and advancing those efforts through research and education. This work is made possible in large part by generous philanthropic and volunteer support from individuals and organizations throughout the state and region. An award-winning health system, Children’s is regularly ranked by U.S. News & World Report as a top children’s hospital and by The Leapfrog Group for quality and efficiency.
