Party with a Purpose Update

As you know, with the support of our sponsors, members and Party with a Purpose attendees, CHMG raised enough money to grant TWO WISHES. We are very excited to give you an update on our recipients and the wishes we’ve granted!

Abbey – One of our own CHMG Kiddos was diagnosed with Non Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in February. She is a Freshman at MGSH and a swimmer on the HS swim team. We granted Abbey’s WISH! She and her family will be going to the U.S. Olympic Swim Training camp in Colorado!

Now we’d like you to meet Treynor….
Treynor is 6 years old and lives in Hanover. Treynor, who suffers from a heart condition, wished for a trip to Disney World with his family and we have granted his wish!

We will send you all an update once Abbey and Treynor’s wish trips are complete!

Mobile Hope Dinner & Crafts

CHMG went back to Mobile Hope last night! Words can’t explain how grateful I feel for nights & opportunities like these! We brought dinner & crafts and most importantly had a great time talking with the residents and playing/crafting with the kids! Our CHMG kids inspire me… they took time to connect with these kiddos and show them unconditional love. Today my heart is happy!!! Thank you to all our CHMG members who came out and helped and those of you that provided food! A special thank you to Joy Todd for the fun Easter Crafts!

 We feel blessed by the support that our community and our amazing sponsors are showing Charitable Housewives!

For the past 5 years, the funds raised with our May event have allowed us to grant a wish to a child facing a life-threatening illness. Although we will be “partying” this year instead of “running” we will be granting a wish to another deserving family. This year, however, we will grant a wish to a family VERY close to our homes and hearts.

Our very own CHMG Kid, Abbey Cornelius, was recently diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Abbey is a Freshman at Maple Grove Senior High School. She is a member of the swim team, an amazing daughter, sister and friend to many. We are so excited that we can help Abbey and her family. Her bravery and grace amazes us every day and we look forward to sharing her fight, her wish and her story with you; We can’t wait for the day when we share the news that Abbey is cancer-free!

Thank you to our sponsors, Rush Creek Golf Club and Wishes & More for supporting Charitable Housewives and making our Party with a Purpose a reality!

Teen “Sweet Cases”

This weekend our Teen Committee decorated & stuffed Sweet Cases for Together We Rise-An organization that helps foster children in our community. These children need help! When children enter the foster care system they are given 2-trash bags for their belongings. These “Sweet Cases” provide these children with a duffle bag to call their own & are filled with necessities to help them through this very difficult time. Our teens gave these bags a special touch with decorating & included letters of encouragement! We are proud of our CHMG Teens for their constant desire to make the world a better place!

2017 Party With A Purpose!

For the past five years, we have held a 5k on Mother’s Day Weekend. This has been a wonderful and successful endeavor for our organization, and we were able to grant five wishes to terminally ill children in the Twin Cities area with the proceeds from this event. This year, we are departing from the 5k and hosting a party at Rush Creek Golf Club. We are calling it “Party with a Purpose…Cinco De Mayo featuring Shane Martin.” The party will be open to the public, and all of the money raised will go towards granting a wish for a local child dealing with a terminal illness through Wishes & More.

Our goal is to sell at least 250 tickets to this event and are asking for your help in spreading the word!  Please invite your friends and family to join us for a night of great food,drinks, entertainment, and DOING GOOD TOGETHER!
