Carlson Farms - Farm to Table Dinner
It's all about the kids . . .
Norm and Karen Carlson hosted their fourth annual Farm to Table Dinner in support of Bronson Children's Hospital. This exceptional event featured delicious hors d'oeuvres, refreshments and a three course plated meal by local chefs!
The event was a great success welcoming more than 550 people from the community and raised $84,624 to support the patients at Bronson Children's Hospital. Thanks to the generosity of the community, these funds will be used to provide the following:
- 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.
