The menus are being set and the final touches are being added to the auction packages for the St. Cloud Signature Chefs Auction! Be our guest Thursday, October 27 at the Best Western Kelly Inn to sample delicious dishes from the area’s best chefs. It all benefits babies!
Need some inspiration? Meet the our ambassador family: quadruplets from St. Cloud! The boys are identical triplets. They were born last fall more than three months premature.
Finn, Max, Beckett and Stella each weighed around 2 pounds and spent months in the newborn intensive care unit. Their parents, William and Stephanie, are grateful to the March of Dimes. Not only did March of Dimes fund the research that treated the underdeveloped lungs of each baby, March of Dimes NICU Family Support at St. Cloud Hospital gave them much needed comfort and information.
“The support we received from the March of Dimes NICU Family Support Program was priceless,” shared Stephanie. “The support specialist was a person who I could talk to and cry to, knowing that she understood. They hosted events where we could talk to other parents who were travelling similar roads. NICU Family Support provided a professional photographer to take treasured pictures of our tiny babies and a harpist to play music for them.”
Finn, Max, Beckett and Stella are happy, healthy and just celebrated their first birthday. They will melt your heart and inspire your 100% tax deductible donation during our Fund the Mission.
