Breanna’s Star is our main fundraising event of the year, a night of Art, Celebration and Giving held every year in April. This casual evening is filled with live music, auctions, a creative art project for those who wish to participate, a wall of wine and more.
Our featured artist this year was Chris Wilson. Chris is a visual artist and one of our Breanna’s Gift teachers. Chris and the children at Children’s MN in both Minneapolis and St. Paul hospitals collaborated to create an embossed metal work of art for our live auction. Chris also led our do-it-yourself art project at this year’s event.
Emily Engberg joined us once again to lead the live auction and fund-a-workshop efforts. Breanna’s Star event would not be the same without her. And of course our event band Trailer Trash always puts the “live” into live entertainment.
We are so grateful to all of our event patrons, live and silent auction donors, guests and everyone who contributes their time and talent to making our events such a success. We’d like to give special mention to our $10,000 Universe Patron, Parsons Electric, our $7,500 Galaxy Patron, John Fallin and the team at Origination, our $1,500 Moon Patron, Werner Electric and our $1,000 Moon Patrons, Rick & Tamra Anderson, The Bainey Group, Gayle Becker, Tim & Jan Dufault, Gardner Builders, Graybar, Cynthia & Keith Gustafson, Lesley & Jonathan Kochel, and Sever Construction. This year, after expenses, you helped us raise $53,000. We are speechless over these amazing results.
