Join us for our Forever In Our Hearts Annual Banquet & Auction on March 17, 2018, St. Patrick’s Day! Yes, St. Patrick’s Day, a day to celebrate your Irish heritage and a day to be Irish even if you are not. This is the only fundraiser we have for the year for The Haven Network. All funds raised directly support the programs and services offered to families in our community enduring the death of their baby. The Forever In Our Hearts Banquet & Auction will be an evening filled with music from Reed And Waddy, introducing Baffling Ben, a Magician who will baffle your mind, a live and silent auction that will wow the senses, delicious food and signature drinks. Don’t miss out. This will be an evening to remember.

We are humbled by the continued support of the three local hospitals, businesses and individuals in our community that come together to make this such a successful event for The Haven Network. Again this year we are incorporating “Family Sponsorships” as a way to celebrate and honor families that suffered the loss of their baby.  This $600.00 sponsorship includes: a table for eight and all the evening’s festivities. Family Sponsorships provide a way for parents to celebrate their baby’s life with friends and family while simultaneously benefitting the programs and services of The Haven Network. This becomes a beautiful witness for everyone as parents can share their experiences and talk about their baby, knowing we are all gathered to give acknowledgement to their journey and continue to guide them all the way. The Forever In Our Hearts Banquet & Auction is sure to be a place of excitement, comfort and joy as we celebrate together all the wonderful work The Haven Network accomplishes.

To receive an invitation to our event or to be a family sponsor, please contact The Haven Network at 815.962.1512.
