Thank you for helping us raise $130,000 to nourish families living with life-threatening illnesses in the Twin Cities!

Welcome to Barlow’s Birthday Bash's Team Page

From Team Captain, Annie Barlow:

This September 18th, I will be celebrating my 30th birthday!
In lieu of gifts or a big birthday celebration, I'm participating in the Open Arms Cook-a-Thon, where we'll try to prepare 11,000 meals in just 24 hours. I am serving as Team Captain for our team, "Barlow's Birthday Bash"!

Open Arms of Minnesota cooks and delivers free, nutritious meals to families living with life-threatening illnesses in the Twin Cities. I have had the privilege of not only being able to volunteer with Open Arms, but I am able to refer my cancer patients to their services often. Nutrition is so important to my patients and their families, and being able to be a part of Open Arms on both sides of the operation is incredibly special to me.

My team is trying to raise $10,000 to support our volunteer shift in the kitchen, and we would love your help to get there. We would be honored if you would be willing to donate $30 to our campaign in honor of my birthday. However, a donation of any amount makes a impact for neighbors in need. Just $5 provides a meal for a client, $20 provides a meal for a family of four, and $60 will feed a client for an entire week.

Thank you for your support as we raise money to support our team's volunteer shift and make an impact for neighbors in need!
