In November, the Sapphire Circle – a philanthropic group of women who support Make-A-Wish®
Minnesota, held the fourth annual Wine, Women & Wishes event. Guests enjoyed wine selections, savory treats and get a head start on their holiday shopping. They also celebrated completing the inaugural year of the Sapphire Circle – which began in November 2014.
The Sapphire Circle offers opportunities for women to connect with each other and promote their businesses through educational and networking events, as well as interact with Minnesota wish kids through various volunteer activities.
During the group’s first year, the 35 members also hosted fundraising events and participated as a team at the annual Walk For Wishes®. Overall the group was able to raise $75,000 – enough to grant more than 10 wishes for children in Minnesota diagnosed with life-threatening medical conditions.
The Sapphire Circle is excited about the group’s plans for the upcoming year and hopes to give more strength and joy to wish kids and their families.
