Famous Dave’s Wilbur Cares Party

Jan 28, 2017 4:00 PM – Jan 23, 2016 8:00 PM, Minneapolis

Join us on January 28 for the 2017 Wilbur Cares Party, hosted by the Famous Dave’s Jazz Club in Calhoun Square! This event will feature live music, a silent auction, balloon pop and their famous BBQ! All proceeds from the party will contribute to Famous Dave’s pledge of $50,000 to fund a private patient room in the Karen and George Benz Family Pediatric Neuroscience Center inside Children’s – St. Paul. The Neuroscience Center brings Children’s expertise together under one roof so that kids with brain injuries and other neurological illnesses can benefit from the seamless and integrated care needed to treat these complex disorders. The private patient rooms allow families to stay close during their child’s stay, and bring the comforts of home to the hospital setting.
