More than $2 million was raised at the 23rd annual Children's Star Gala on Saturday, April 5, 2014.

The 23rd annual Children’s Star Gala was held Saturday at The Depot Minneapolis. Nearly 1,100 guests joined us for an evening of inspiring stories, dinner, dancing and silent and live auctions.

Thanks to the support of generous sponsors, donors, attendees and volunteers, we raised nearly $2.1 million for the Midwest Fetal Care Center. Their generosity will help us expand our fetal care program – allowing us to detect, diagnose and treat babies before they are born. This sometimes results in operating on a baby while he or she still is in the mother’s womb – imagine the possibilities.

Visit our archived live blog to get a glimpse of the evening, or watch this segment on KARE 11 which showcases 9-year-old Children’s patient Cecilia performing “Let It Go” from the movie “Frozen.”

Over the next couple weeks, we’ll introduce you to patients and families that shared their stories at the event. Stay tuned for some inspiring videos and stories!
