The pandemic will not stop the effort to make things a little easier for families and patients at Children’s Minnesota. Children’s Hospital Association is getting creative and going virtual with one of their annual fundraising events, Art With Heart.

You can now bid on experiences and gorgeous creations made by local artists, who draw their inspiration from artwork designed by patients.

Marti Priest is one of the artists who designed and donated stoneware. Her son was born premature 25 years ago and she’s been giving back to the Children’s Hospital Association ever since.

“They don’t treat just your child, they treat the whole family. If there’s ever a way that I can give back to that, that’s what I want to do,” Priest said.

You can join "The Dude" from Children's Star Studio for the virtual event on April 22.
