About Our Organization
The Duluth Clinic Foundation, St. Mary’s Medical Center Foundation and St. Mary’s Hospital of Superior Foundation, associated members of Essentia Health Foundation, seek private philanthropic support to make a healthy difference in people lives throughout Duluth, Superior, northeastern Minnesota, northwestern Wisconsin and the upper peninsula of Michigan. Tax deductable gifts support medical research, education, technology, patient care and equipment.
To date, the Fairy Princess Ball has raised over $54,000 for the Erick Peter Person Children’s Cancer Center Fund through the Essentia Health Foundation.
The local fund gives support to families who are fighting childhood cancer by helping them offset some of the extra costs that are incurred while their child is receiving life-saving cancer treatment in Duluth.
The Fairy Princess Ball has a highly dedicated team of fairy godmothers and our newest committee addition, Jeremy, Sparkle Engineer, that make the event possible each year. The Essentia Health Foundation proudly recognizes Heather Anderson, Pascha Apter, Amy Fink and Jeremy Schrupp for their valuable support.
As with any premiere event, it not only takes a committee, it takes sponsors and donors to achieve our mission to help families facing cancer. Please check out our sponsors and donor page for more information on this year’s ball. Their hearts are huge, and caring is deep for our local families fighting cancer.
