Wine in the Garden 2014 was a great success! The event was held in Cannon River Winery's beautiful new second floor space which has high ceilings and rough wood floors. The warmth of atmosphere was felt through the cool October night. The wine was flowing and paired with yummy homemade comfort foods by Cannon River Catering Company. The silent auction and flower pulls had some lively action with people anticipating and being excited about what they "won". It was completely worth it to blow your diet on Amy's Cupcake Shoppe cupcakes! The music was beautiful and performed live by such wonderful people. The Sorensen family shared their story of their journey with Carter who was in the NICU last year, the struggles that he endured and the love of mom and dad to get him through every day.
Best of all though, everyone present was there to support Eden's Gardens mission to provide resources and support to families going through the journey in the NICU. Approximately 5% of babies born in Minnesota every year will require a NICU admission. These families may be going through a journey that adds stress to their everyday lives and Eden's Garden is able to step in and help them through this journey. Thank you for sponsoring the event, donating an item to the silent auction, attending and most of all supporting Eden's Gardens mission!! Eden's Garden raised $12,900 for families going through this journey in the NICU. Thank you!!
