Throwing the spotlight on Karla Blomberg and all the hard working staff and volunteers at Wishes and More®, a Minnesota based charity group that grants wishes to children with terminal and life-threatening illnesses.
Held at the Marriott City Center in downtown Minneapolis, this year’s Winter Ball theme was a Gathering of Superheroes. Guests were encouraged to dress the part in their favorite costume or attend in black-tie style for a Bruce Wayne Gala.
In attendance was former Minnesota Viking, celebrity chef and singer (turned incredible Hulk) – Esera Tuaolo
He not only donated a chef dinner for the auction (that went for $4,000), but lent his singing talent to the entertainment for the evening as well.
Here’s some quick pics of some of the other volunteers and guests in costume…
My donation to the live auction was a drawing of Rey from Star Wars. With a starting bid of $65, it was over $150 before bidding closed.
And even though the Winter Ball is over, you can still help out by just going to wishesandmore.org
And last but not least I want to thank David and Jen Bresler for the invite to the gala, and also their generosity in hosting a table.
You guys are the best!
