The 5th Annual Home Plate Gala for the Crescent Cove Hospice and Respite Home for Children
I had the pleasure of donating my photography services for the 5th Annual Home Plate Gala for Crescent Cove held at the Minneapolis Marriott Northwest on Saturday, January 28th, 2017. The Home Plate Gala was MC’d beautifully by Mrs. Minnesota International, Morgan Bredde.
The Home Plate Gala, now in its 5th year, celebrates all the love, innovation, and team work that will culminate in the building and operation of the midwest’s first children’s hospice and respite home. The camaraderie shared on that special evening was truly inspiring and deepened the commitment to provide care, comfort and support to thousands of families who have children with shortened life expectancy.
Several of the Crescent Cove dream team and legends of baseball were in attendance. Paul & Destini Molitor, Jack & Jennifer Morris, Clyde Doepner, Nita Killebrew and Tony & Gordette Oliva were all on hand for an evening of joy because we are Heading for Home!
My connection with this wonderful event stems for our friendship with the late Major League Baseball Hall of Famer Harmon Killebrew and his wife Nita. I am so honored to help out for one of Harmon’s favorite causes, the Harmon Killebrew Hospice Home for Kids Fund.
Below there’s a little highlight video I put together that sums up this wonderful evening that raised more the $175,000 to help towards getting this much needed home purchased and ready for these kids and the many families that need it so badly. Please feel free to donate to this great cause if you can. Thank you! – M&J
