Delicious Fundraiser for Northland Newborn Foundation

Updated: October 15, 2019 04:29 PM

An annual premier chef event is happening on Thursday, October 17 and the money raised supports newborns and families right in the Northland.


Kim Pearson, who is on the board for the Northland Newborn Foundation, said this year they will have chefs from places including Valentini's, Essentia, New Scenic Cafe,  Red Lobster, and more. 

"We also have a lot of wine and beer tastings from Ursa Minor, Duluth Cider Company," Pearson said.  "There are over a dozen chefs that will be there."  

There will also be live and silent auction items to bid on.  The money supports the mission of the Northland Newborn Foundation which is to support healthy families in the Northland communities, according to Pearson.

"Especially dear to our heart is that all of the money stays right here in the Twin Ports area.  None of the money goes outside this area," Pearson said. 

The event is in the new space at Clyde Iron Works called the Malting Room.

This is the foundation's main fundraiser of the year. 

"We're able to support families who have maybe infants who are in one of the newborn intensive care units, perhaps a family who has a pediatric child who is ill," Pearson said.  "Sometimes people have the loss of an infant or a child and we've partnered with Faith's Lodge down in Danbury, Wisconsin to send families and couples there for support after the loss of a child."

Their mission encompasses support for healthy families and babies in the community. 

Pearson said they're looking forward to meeting people and sharing what their board is all about.
