  • May 14th, 2011, is Ella's Halo Bowling for Babies event at Park Tavern in St. Louis Park. We are working to get donations and working on all of the details. I am really excited for this year's event and all of the fun ideas we are planning. The bowling event is currently slated for 2:00-5:00 p.m. It will be a fun filled family afternoon with music, bowling and pizza. More details about where to purchase your  tickets will be available later this month.
    • If you or someone you know would like to be a sponsor for Ella's Halo Bowling for Babies 2nd Annual Event, please contact us at We are also taking donations for our raffle and silent auction. If you have items or services you would like to donate, please let us a know.  All donations are fully tax deductible, we are a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. 
  • Thank you to the Minnesota Medical Foundation for giving our board of directors a tour of the new University of Minnesota Amplatz Children's Hospital and the newly remodeled NICU. We enjoyed our tour and it was nice to see the new facility for families and children. I hardly even recognized the NICU we spent 83 days and nights in. We were able to take the tour with two doctors that work in the NICU. It was really fun to see one of Ella's doctors again, and to spend an afternoon with him on the tour. It brings a smile to my face when her doctors recognize us and remember our baby girl.  Those doctors and nurses not only touched us, but maybe Ella touched them too.
  • Also this past week we were a featured nonprofit here on The Blogunteer Blog. It is fun to be featured on other organizations' blogs and it helps us continue to keep spreading the word about Ella's Halo.  The Blogunteer is a blog about volunteerism and highlighting organizations like Ella's Halo who are making a difference.
  • As always, we are constantly thinking of new ideas and ways to help spread the word about Ella's Halo. We are always open to your ideas and thoughts, so please share your comments, feedback and ideas in the comments section below, or email us at, or write us on our facebook page.
