Regional Director’s Message

Dear Friends,

I hope you all had a wonderful summer.

We are excited for the Celebrando a Los Niños Gala and the Pequeño Tour. We hope you will be able to join us at one or all of our events.

There is still time to register for the gala if you haven’t already done so. We have already sold over 400 tickets so don’t wait much longer. You can register by calling us at the office (651-482-1703) or online at www.nphusa.org/celebrando. The event will be held at the Crown Plaza in St. Paul on Saturday, October 3rd.

Additionally, if you would like to help with the auction, we are in need of gift cards (for restaurants, Target or sporting events) and wine/beer.  Do you know a chef who is willing to help our mission? We need their help! Do you have extra airline miles or hotel points you’d be willing to donate? We need your support.

We are excited to welcome the eight pequeños from NPH El Salvador October 1st-12th. You can meet them at the gala or a number of events in the beginning of October. To learn more about their schedule please click here: www.nphusa.org/event/upper-midwest-pequeno-tour

Our associate board also invites you to join them at the inaugural Pedal for Pequeños. All you need is a bike and an appetite for a fun progressive dinner. www.nphusa.org/event/pedal-for-pequenos

Lastly, be a part of the NPH Photo Gallery and writing Contest. Do you have a photo that encapsulates what NPH truly is?   How about a short story or poem? Please share with us and be entered to win in one of our categories. www.nphusa.org/competition

Thank you for all you do for NPH USA and the 3400 children living in our NPH homes!
