It's rare for a singular event to bring so much joy and meaning to so many individuals and organizations, but Gillette Children's celebration of the 3rd Annual Mauer and Friends Kids Classic, did just that. The event took place on a perfect, June day, and 25 Gillette patients and their families had the experience of a lifetime down on the grass of Target Field.
The event kicked off with an hour of games with many local sports legends from the Minnesota Twins, Wild, and other pro teams, and a luncheon benefitting Gillette took place afterward. The team at Gillette is profoundly appreciative of the time and effort both Joe and Maddie Mauer have put in to grow the size and scope of this event.
Over the past three years, we've raised more than $1 million. These contributions will only bolster Gillette's ability to continue providing vital and transformative specialty care for children all throughout our region.
We're also quite thankful to our Hall of Fame sponsors, Delta Air Lines and Thomas Drees at Morgan Stanley Wealth Management, as well as to our other sponsors, and the countless individuals whose contributions made the day possible.
We've followed up with many of our families following the event and the reviews are universal: "Best. Day. Ever."
