Welcome to the 21 For Kids Childrens Foundation

I have had the opportunity to play in the NHL for 10 years and now the honor of coming home to play for "The greatest hockey fans in the world". I am very proud to be from Minnesota and felt now was the time to give back to this great state of ours!

I have a niece, Ruby, who was diagnosed with epilepsy which is how I have gotten involved with the Epilepsy Foundation. Through my years of playing in the NHL, I have visited many children's hospitals and have been humbled by the strength and courage of children and their families fighting for their lives every day.

21 For Kids was created to provide assistance for Minnesota children, like Ruby, and their families. Please join me in helping to make the lives of children with disabilities and disease better in Minnesota. I look forward to seeing you at our Live Auction/Dinner/Concert Event on August 15th and our ProAm golf tourney on August 16th! If you would like to give a financial donation please call Todd Luoma at 612-508-1872.
