Blair’s Tree of Hope Non-Profit Foundation is hosting its 4th annual Interpretations of Hope event on Saturday, April 9, 2016.  The event will be held at the Hopkins Center for the Arts, 1111 Main Street, Hopkins MN 55343.

This event is being held to raise funds to help families who have a child(ren) going through a Pediatric Cancer, Pediatric Blood Disorder or Pediatric Bone Marrow Journey at either the Minneapolis Children’s or the U of MN Masonic Children’s Hospitals.

These families spend weeks, sometimes even months in the hospitals and we help them with gas cards, Target/Walmart cards, grocery cards, parking passes and much more.  Since inception on 7/31/2007, we have processed all of the applications that the social workers send to us for the families.   Our current budget is set to help 140 families and we will surpass that number.

We ask you to consider our request for a donation of product or sponsorship of our event.  Know that your donation and/or sponsorship will help us give HOPE to these families in their time of need.

Please feel free to contact me if you need any additional information either by email at or by phone 612-599-4221.

Thank you.

Happy Thanksgiving

Abby 2015
“Thanksgiving comes by statute; once a year, to the honest man it comes as frequently as the heart of gratitude will allow.”

We are busy working with Jim Wagner of Wagner’s Drive Inn, Heidi Kaliher, Harrison Electric, Deb Wingert and the volunteers who help to serve and provide our 8th Annual Thanksgiving Dinner to the U of M Masonic Hospital including the patients, families, docs, nurses and the rest of the staff.

This is a traditional meal of Turkey, Ham, Mashed Potatoes, Sweet Potatoes, Green Beans, Salad with Raspberry Dressing, Cupcakes by Heidi. The families and staff who enjoy the meal are very appreciative to eat a normal meal and not from a vending machine or a microwave meal… Thank you to all who help us make this possible….

For the second year in a row we thank Joe and Chris Gottlieb for their donation for our annual Thanksgiving Dinner at the U of MN Masonic in honor of their daughter Abigail Jan. Abigal had open heart surgery in 2013 along with subsequent complications for a 22 day hospital stay at U of MN Masonic.

Quote from Chris “We are very blessed people to have had such great care at Amplatz, and we were so thankful for your organization’s gift of a real Thanksgiving Dinner after such a traumatic week. To give their personal time and effort just to help us meant so much. So we wanted to support your efforts as Thanksgiving is coming up this year – I guess you could say this in in honor of our Abigail Jan Gottlieb just being here with us, but it is really in support of remembering how much that dinner meant to us and helping the folks who will be there fighting this year.”

From or family to yours we wish you all a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday and know how very thankful we are to each and everyone of you!
