Open Hearts for Open Arms

November 13 – 21, 2020

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Open Arms is combining our two annual in-person fundraisers into one online fundraising event to benefit the 58 children who call Open Arms “home”. We invite you to join us at Open Arms’ first-ever online auction this November 2020, “Open Hearts for Open Arms”!

Participants will have the opportunity to bid on a variety of auction items (including Super Bowl tickets, a trip to next year’s PGA golf tournament, a 1965 Ford Mustang Fastback, and more!), help donate to specific funding needs and watch new videos from the Open Arms Board, staff, and children.

Bidding opens: November 13th at 6pm CST

Bidding closes: November 21st at 6pm CST

Randall McDaniel Golf Classic and Holiday Concert Cancelled

Open Arms Plans Virtual Event for November

Due to the COVID pandemic, Open Arms Home for Children will not be holding its annual in-person fundraising events in 2020.

The Randall McDaniel Charity Golf Classic scheduled for October 2nd in the Twin Cities, and the annual holiday concert at the Wigwam Resort on December 5th in Phoenix, have been cancelled.  

In their place, Open Arms will hold a virtual online fundraiser from November 13-21.  We hope you will join us for this fun and innovative approach to sharing the stories and blessings of the children at Open Arms.

Stay tuned for more information on how you can help us continue to provide love and security to the 58 children who call Open Arms “home”!

We expect both the golf tournament and concert will return in 2021. Thank you for supporting our children during these unprecedented times.

Please stay well!
