The Minnesota Wild Foundation Gala benefits the Minnesota Wild Foundation and its premier community partner, Children’s Minnesota. A portion of the funds raised will go to support the Children’s Minnesota Mental Health program. The Minnesota Wild Foundation’s mission is to grow the game of hockey and support pediatric medical related causes. Since the first event in 2003, Wild About Children has raised over $3 million for charity with more than $1.9 million benefitting Children’s Minnesota.


The Minnesota Wild Foundation exists to support the game of hockey and improve the lives of families in the State of Hockey. With support from Wild players, fans and donors, the Minnesota Wild Foundation supports pediatric medical causes, serves as the largest non-member funding source for Minnesota Hockey, and provides fundraising opportunities for youth hockey associations across the state. Since its inception in 2009, the Wild Foundation has distributed $5.4 million in grants to hockey organizations and children’s medical related charities and has helped local charities raise over $6.8 million through its Split the Pot Raffle program.
