December 18, 2018, Tuesday - Best Christmas Ever Charity Wrapping Party! at Modist Brewing

Time: 6:00pm - 8:00pm

Location: Modist Brewing Company, 505 N 3rd Street

Best Christmas Ever Charity Wrapping Party!

We have worked hard for 4 weeks collecting money and gifts for our family, come celebrate them and all of your hard work while wrapping these gifts with us! If you haven't been able to contribute yet, bring a cash donation or unwrapped gift and Dr. Andy will buy you your first beer.

The family we are helping is a Twin Cities family of 4. The youngest daughter, 4 years old, has been diagnosed with Stage 3 Cancer. She is a spunky, sweet, fun young girl who loves zebras and the color pink. She had been struggling with a sinus infection earlier this fall. Upon going to the doctor, she was immediately transported to Pediatric ICU, at which point the tumor was discovered. She started chemo almost immediately. This clearly has taken a huge toll on this young family. Older sister who is just in elementary school spends far less time with Mom and Dad as they realize the struggle of trying to care for both kids at once, in different cities. We have the opportunity to help them. 

- 100% of all donations go to this family
- Every donation is tax deductible
- This IS A SURPRISE to the family. The family has no clue that this is happening for them, and they are in no way involved. All gifts, and donations, will be collected and dropped off to family a few days before Christmas as a surprise. 

Outside of donations on this website, there is a gift tree at Well Adjusted Minneapolis, 401 N 3rd Street Suite 220. This gift tree will be up until Tuesday December 18th, at which point we will be having a gift wrapping party to wrap all of our gifts before we drop them off at our family's home. If you want to buy a specific gift for the family, please email the gift you have chosen (to avoid duplicates), and have it shipped and/or delivered by December 18th. As gifts come in, the list below will be updated.


- Tires for Vehicle (lots of driving to Mayo)

- Clothes, Girl, Size 7/8
- American Girl Doll (2)
