The 2017 Storyland Gala - Where our journey began... took place on Saturday, October 28th at the Saint Paul RiverCentre and those in attendance were treated to an incredible night reflecting on CHA's history while looking forward to continuing our journey. Emcee Leah McLean guided the program while guests enjoyed the silent auction, games, booze walls and Katie Imholte Gabriel of Fladeboe Auctions lead the live auction and this year's Fund-A-Need which featured the Children's Pediatric Clinic of St. Paul. Mick Sterling and a band called Soul provided the entertainment for the night and kept the party going through the dance after the program.
Our heartfelt thanks goes out to our Presenting Sponsor, Hubbard Broadcasting Foundation, for their support of the Gala and CHA as a whole. We would also like to thank our Distinguished Sponsors Total Wine & More, Twin Cities Pioneer Press, Spaces, Saint Paul RiverCentre, Vomela and KME Photography.
Finally, thank you to all of our incredible Diamond, Platinum, Gold and Silver Sponsors and everyone in attendance on a beautiful October evening. Together we have been CHAnging kids' lives for the past 84 years and are looking forward to continuing our mission into the future!
2017 Signature Sponsor
Fund-A-Need - Children's St. Paul General Pediatrics Clinic
Children’s Hospital Association began our important community work back in 1933 with the establishment of the Free Bed Fund. This ensured that St. Paul’s children had a place to be cared for when they were ill or injured. This legacy continues at the 2017 CHA Storyland Gala where we will raise funds to support work of the Children’s St. Paul General Pediatrics Clinic.
With a comprehensive approach to care, and over 20,000 patient encounters each year, this remarkable clinic provides access to medical care for all children….regardless of their special healthcare needs or ability to pay. With your support on October 28th, CHA will be able to continue its legacy of supporting the health of kids and families in St. Paul and the surrounding area for many years to come.
