Night of Inspiration Spotlights 3 Special Families

Posted On: 04/12/2010

Last week’s Night of Inspiration concert featured talented local artists — from rock bands and pianists to vocal and guitar soloists — all sharing their music for a good cause. Throughout the evening, concert-goers heard firsthand from three families of children who have been touched by Gillette. The concert was free-of-charge, with attendees encouraged to make a generous donation to Gillette in lieu of a ticket fee.

Thank you to Miss Twin Cities (and talented pianist!) Kathryn Knuttila for organizing, and participating in, a memorable evening — and to the students at McNally Smith College of Music for offering up their talents to help our patients. Miss Twin Cities and other state-wide royalty are part of the Miss Minnesota organization, a longtime supporter of Gillette through Children’s Miracle Network.
