2021 Annual Benefit Sponsorships

I’m Chris Bentley, the Executive Director of Wings for Widows. I am excited to tell you that we are already gearing up for this year’s Annual Benefit, which we’ve decided to live stream at 7 pm on October 15th. I ask that you take a few minutes to consider joining us as an event sponsor. 

Last year’s virtual annual benefit drew more than 600 viewers. This year we are partnering with a number of national organizations to reach many thousands. The objective of our annual benefit is to raise awareness of the Widow Crisis and under-served widow community while raising funds to serve more widows across the country.  

What impact does our fundraising have? Take Jo, for example. We advocated for her and eventually saved her over $200,000 in medical bills. Or Karen. We worked with her to keep her and her disabled grandson in their home. We’ve helped hundreds of widows since our inception in 2017. And it’s only been possible through the donations and gifts from generous advocates like you. 

This year’s annual benefit is being hosted by Sven Sundgaard, Twin Cities meteorologist and world traveler/blogger. Musical guests include Jenn Bostic, Nashville resident and international artist, and Miki Speer, author, songwriter and singer. Our featured speaker is Michelle Steinke-Baumgardauthor of “Healthy Healing” and creator of One Fit Widow.
