Have a Heart Benefit

Apr 01, 2023
6:00 pm to 10:00 pm in Minneapolis, MN at Minneapolis Event Centers
Registration Deadline: Mar 19, 2023

The Have a Heart Benefit is presented by White Bear Mitsubishi and Volkswagen of Inver Grove. The benefit is a heartwarming evening filled with campy fun to celebrate our campers, their incredible resilience, and the vital connections Camp Odayin provides. This year, we’re excited to be hosting the benefit at the beautiful Minneapolis Event Centers. Ticket sales ended on March 19th.

There will be a NEW SPIN on the event this year! Choose your own adventure: simply soak up the playful atmosphere or take a spin around “camp” engaging in games and activities along the way…

  • Venture into the woods to play Hammer-Schlagen
  • Jump into a wind chamber and try to avoid the Health Center
  • Try your hand at Arts & Crafts or take a project to-go
  • Cast a line and go minnow racing
  • Gallop over to the stables and hop on a “horse”
  • Challenge a friend to a Pop-A-Shot basketball showdown


6-8pm: Gourmet mac & cheese and stir fry food stations, drinks, and s’mores. Complementary Colby Red Wine and a beer tasting provided by Boathouse Brothers Brewing Co. Silent auction and photo booth. Campy adventure activities. Live music from Russ Parrish.

8pm: Program co-emceed by camper Rose and Rena Sarigianopoulos from KARE 11
