My friends Ryan and Taryn from way back in my high school days started a wonderful non-profit in memory of their daughter Ella. You may have heard their story as they have received some much deserved media attention lately. This Saturday is their 4th annual Bowling for Babies event at Park Tavern in St. Louis Park. I am happy to say that for the second year in a row we are donating a canvas lake map for their silent auction (Lake Minnetonka this year). Additionally, this year we will be in town and are looking forward to taking part in the festivities on Saturday! If you love babies and you are around this weekend I encourage you to check out this event and support Ryan and Taryn.
Here is an excerpt from a recent KARE 11 story about the event:
ST. LOUIS PARK, Minn. — Ella’s Halo hosts their fourth annual Bowling for Babies event to support babies and families in Twin Cities Newborn Intensive Care Units. The event is Saturday, May 11 at the Park Tavern in St. Louis Park starting at 1PM.
Ella’s Halo is an organization founded by Taryn Krumwiede, one of this year’s Eleven Who Care honorees. Taryn and her husband Ryan started Ella’s Halo after losing their daughter Ella who lived for 83 days in the NICU. Ella’s Halo works to provide small comforts of home to babies and families in the Twin Cities Newborn Intensive Care Units.
