Carlson Farms - Farm to Table Dinner
Norm and Karen Carlson have made the difficult decision to go virtual this year with their annual Farm to Table Dinner. COVID-19 and government recommendations to limit social gatherings will still be in effect in October and they don't want to limit who can attend in person.
This year, Norm and Karen have decided to support Bronson's music therapy and reading programs, two areas near and dear to them. Please consider a sponsorship or donation to ensure another successful year.
The Carlsons' are planning a virtual auction and fireworks show. Stay tuned for more information.
Contact Carmen Foljahn at firstname.lastname@example.org with your questions or for more information on how to sponsor.
A special thank you to our Sponsors!

Projects that Carlson Farms has Supported
- NICU Cameras: New technology with a camera and secure web-based software were installed in each NICU room in January 2017. Parents and families now have the capability to look in on their newborn baby from any location, at any time.
- Pediatric Family Kitchen & Lounge: This lounge heavily used by family members during an extended stay at Bronson Children's Hospital received an upgrade. The lounge provides a space for families to gather, have a meal together and do their laundry. It is also a warm, inviting and practical space for siblings to do their homework.
- Communication Boards for NICU patient rooms: These beautifully designed boards allow families to communicate with their child's providers in passing. They are used to set daily and weekly goals for their babies. The power of knowledge is critical as these families manage their daily lives with their NICU baby.
- Pediatric Family Food Pantry: For parents that cannot get away from the unit or for those that do not have food resources, this pantry gives sustainable food options to ensure families eat while they care for their child.
- NICU Family Dinners: Families in the NICU live day-by-day, goal-by-goal. There are setbacks and successes. Having a support group to rely on is important. NICU dinners are held twice a month and offer parents currently in the NICU with a nearby space to take a break, eat a nutritional meal and connect with other families for support during their NICU journey.
