Ninth Annual Minnesota Miracle New Year's Eve Celebration (First Shift)

Help at one of the best New Year's Eve family events in the Twin Cities: The Ninth Annual Minnesota Miracle New Year's Eve Celebration. Ring in 2014 in style while aiding the Miracles of Mitch Foundation in its mission to support families of children battling cancer. Join us for a fun-filled evening with formal dinner and program, live entertainment, silent and live auctions, and kids' activities. Free parking, dinner and an opportunity to dance, later in the evening.  Volunteers will be assisting with registration, silent auction and kids games. Dress is Dressy to Business Casual.

Mitch's Story

That Mitchell Chepokas lost his life is, unfortunately, all too common of an ending to the story of a child diagnosed with cancer. What makes Mitch’s story so extraordinary is that while his own days and strength were fading, his awareness and compassion for how other cancer kids and their families were suffering continued to grow.

Observing that not all families were blessed with the same love and support that he felt, Mitch was compelled to give away monies earmarked for him to his friends on the cancer ward. To him, it was a simple and inadequate gesture. But what a 9-year old boy hadn’t considered was how miraculous his gift would be for those families during their personal crisis.

From that gesture Mitch’s legacy became an inspiration, especially to other kids, and led his parents to form The Miracles of Mitch Foundation to carry out the final promise and request of their son, a boy named Mitch.

    I'm sorry I wasn't able to make it after all. I came down with a head cold and stayed in for the evening. Looking forward to the next event!

      So we are able to add "Plus Ones?" I didn't see that option on the RSVP :)

    Could I take the 4 to 9p.m. shift, instead of the 11p.m. to 4a.m. shift?

    December 29, 2013

    • Jeff H

      I assume you are referring to the 4:00PM to 9:00PM shift? You're welcome to stay till 4:00AM if you like. :-)

      December 30, 2013

    • Jenny

      Yes, the 4p.m. to 9p.m. shift. Would it be possible to come a bit later, i.e. 6/7p.m, and stay until 10p.m.? I have another event just prior, beginning at 4:30. I don't think I'll be staying until 4a.m. :(
