On March 25, 2017, Blair’s Tree of Hope is hosting their 5th Annual Interpretations of Hope Event at the Hopkins Center for the Arts, 1111 Mainstreet, Hopkins, MN.

This date marks the 10th anniversary of Blair earning her angel wings.

The event will include Wine/Beer tastings, food, games, music and a silent auction that features our Painting for Hope Kids/siblings. These kids/siblings have been battling a form of Childhood Cancer or have lost a sibling to this dreaded disease.

We anticipate 200-300 in attendance and would appreciate your support. We have 4 sponsorship options and if you are interested in being a sponsor send an email to Kim at btohhope@gmail.com and she will send you the information.

Sponsorship helps us to finance the expenses of our event as well as helping to promote our sponsors , so that the funds raised will help us to achieve our mission and goals of helping families with children battling a terrible journey of Cancer/Blood Disorder/Bone Marrow Transplant.

If you are not able to be a sponsor but would like to donate to our Silent Auction, prizes for our games and/or our swag bags we will gladly accept.

Thank you for helping us to give HOPE.

Family Kickball

Our family enjoyed a very special memory with Blair as she was about to start her Bone Marrow journey.  We were thankful to be part of the Flannery Labor Day Weekend Kickball game.  Where it all began- this is a picture of the family during a labor day kickball game. Blair was going through treatment at the time, but for this one day she was able to get out and have a lot of fun! This is where the inspiration for this event and BTOH comes from- that beautiful, smart, brave, gentle, kind, hilarious girl in the front on the right. That is Blair and we do this in her memory.

This is 1 day of full of lots of fun – come and join us and make lots of memories.

We will also have a Bone Marrow Drive going – if you have wanted to register now is the time – there is no cost to you it is sponsored by Be A Hero Become a Donor “BAHBAD”.  We are so thankful to them for being our Bone Marrow Sponsor every year.  During the past 8 years we have found 5 matches and we even know a couple of the donors that helped save/extend someones life.
