Wild About Children Contributes $100,000 To Children’s Hospitals & Clinics Of Minnesota

Minnesota_Wild_Logo_PostIn its six year history the Wild About Children event has contributed over $600,000 to benefit Children’s Hospital.  Wild About Children, presented By R.F. Moeller Jeweler was held on Monday, Nov. 30 at Pazzaluna Urban Italian Restaurant in downtown St. Paul with proceeds benefiting Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota.

The entire Wild roster served as celebrity waiters and traded in their jerseys for aprons to wait on the 150+ guests in attendance. The event raised money through several fundraising vehicles, including a silent and a live auction. One lucky drawing winner received a $5,000 gift card toward a Rolex at R.F. Moeller Jeweler and a suite for a Wild game. The Wild donated tickets to Wednesday’s game to Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota, and the children were able to witness the on-ice check presentation for $100,000.

“We are grateful for the continued support of the Minnesota Wild and are proud to count them as part of our team at Children’s,” said Alan L. Goldbloom, MD, President and CEO of Children’s of Minnesota . “Wild About Children is always a fun event, and it plays an important role in helping us provide the best care possible to all of the children and families that we serve.”
