Generosity Shines At Light Up Night

A sold out crowd celebrated Hennepin Healthcare on December 7th. Preliminary results show generosity at an all time high, with an estimate of $340,000 raised during the evening through the silent and live auctions, fundraising games, and appeal for the Redleaf Center for Family Healing.

Guests were the first to learn about this new Center supporting mothers, babies and families and the transformational gift of  Lynne and Andrew Redleaf.
