our mission statement
The Brighter Days Foundation’s mission is to help seriously and chronically-ill children, ages 0-18, and their families living within the Brainerd Lakes Area of Minnesota by surprising them with meaningful gifts and/or opportunities to brighten their day.
The Foundation is set up to help bring the community together that the child resides in through fundraising events, scholarships and gift presentations by volunteers.
7th ANNUAL GALA + SILENT AUCTION // 01.13.17
The 7th Annual Brighter Days Foundation Gala & Silent Auction is just around the corner. We will be hosting this year's event at the historic Northern Pacific (NP) Event Space on Friday, January 13, 2017 at 6:00 pm. The evening includes a formal dinner, silent and live auction, and a lot of fun all for a great cause!
The Brighter Days Foundation creates a "surprise" visit for children with chronic or long-term illnesses. We purchase gifts for the child, their siblings and parents. Our goal is to take their focus off of the daily struggles and onto something fun and uplifting. These children deal with so much more than the average child so the impact of our giveaways is so important not only to the child, but to their entire family.
If you have supported the foundation in the past, THANK YOU! If you are considering a sponsorship or donation for the first time, we would be very grateful. Your support and donations will help make this event a success and will assist in creating "brighter days" for families in the Brainerd Lakes Area in the coming year.
The Brighter Days Foundation is a 501c(3). Sponsorships and donations without received goods are 100% deductible.
SOLD OUT! Thank you.
