NYE Trans-Siberian Orchestra Show Results
Thank you to Star 101.5 FM and TSO
Thank you to all who came to watch this amazing show and help to support Birthday Dreams! What a fun night! We are so grateful to have received a donation of $10,502 from Star 101.5 and the Trans-Siberian Orchestra!!

Thank You Sharon and Rachel
What an amazing little girl! For Rachel's 4th birthday this past December, her and her mom donated new gifts to Birthday Dreams. Rather than getting gifts for herself, they decided to ask their party goers to bring new unwrapped gifts to be donated to Birthday Dreams. This is such a generous act of kindness, especially at such a young age. Thank you Rachel and Sharon!

Consider doing the same with your child. There is no better gift than teaching our children the value of giving back to others.

Volunteer Highlight
Troy Wigestrand and Landusky Consulting

We'd like to thank Landusky Consulting for continued donation of their time and service to support Birthday Dreams with online advertising. Troy donated his time, to make using our Google Advertising Grant possible. 2016 was our first year where we were able to coordinate online advertising campaigns with our marketing efforts and events. Not only did they set us up, they taught us how to make updates to our campaigns, as we need, and to report on our results. Because of these efforts we were able to attract new volunteers and drive new online traffic to our Birthday Dreams website. In addition, Troy and team continues to provide their ongoing expert guidance. Thank you to Troy for donating his talent and consulting services to Birthday Dreams. Our online advertising efforts wouldn't be possible without Landusky Consulting!
