On 2/3/2018 we held our annual Painting for Hope event where we invite families and kids who we have helped through their journey. The kids along with their families come and paint some amazing artwork that they donate back to BTOH to be put in our silent auction at our 3/10/2018 event.

We raise funds to provide gas cards, grocery cards, parking passes, Target/Walmart cards and much more to families battling cancer. These types of expenses are the ones that people don’t think about when a families has a child in the hospital for weeks and months. We try to help reduce their stress with our gift.

We welcome all donations of items for our silent auction and prizes for our games – if you are interested in being a sponsor see attached information packet.

Any questions please direct those to Kim Anderson at or 612-599-4221.

Thank you for helping us to give HOPE to so many families.2018 Sponsorship Letter

10th Annual Kickball Tournament – 9/30/2017

Published: September 13th, 2017 by Kim Anderson

On behalf of Blair’s Tree of Hope and our board members we would like to Thank you Jodi Olson and her family for putting together this fun tournament that so many have enjoyed the past 10 years.  This is our last year for this amazing event and we have made a lot of new friends and raised a lot of funds to help us achieve our mission and goals of helping families through their childs cancer journey. This event is near and dear to our hearts and we will be forever thankful to the Flanery family.  Our family was invited to the Flanery cabin in between Blair’s treatments and the doctor said she was able to do whatever she felt up to.  The Flanery family holds an annual Kickball game with a picnic and this year they asked Blair if she would want to play and she did.  Tom and I were a little nervous as she had just finished a few rounds of chemo.  The game started and it was Blair’s turn to kick – she goes up to the plate kicks the ball and starts running to first base.  As she is running her jogging pants fell down and you could hear a pin drop as we didn’t know what Blair would do.  She pulled her pants up and got to first base turned to Tom and I and gave us the thumbs up with a huge smile.  Now we all know that she could have clearly gotten put out but the wonderful person who chose not to throw the ball to put her out – Thank you as you gave Blair this wonderful time before she started the next part of her cancer battle.  

Thank all of our sponsors, volunteers, board members, teams that come every year to participate, spectators we could not have had all of these memories without each of you.
