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.

2015 has been a busy and exciting year for Blair’s Tree of Hope!
