Lot Category: Household & Estate > Small Housewares

Doug Messner, a very generous donor of rural Pekin, North Dakota in Southern Nelson County, recently donated these Princess House - Fantastia & Marrissa Collections items.  Doug lost his wife, Kathleen, in 2015 and she loved Princess House.  Doug and his children thought it was a fitting tribute to her to help raise money for the Sunshine Hospitality Home by way of proceeds from this auction.  You can help the effort and purchase some wonderful items for your own home at the same time.

The Sunshine Hospitality Home will be a home away from home available to patients being treated for medical conditions or their family members. It will be open to all ages, illnesses and providers to be used by families in the Greater Grand Forks area and surrounding regions.

Most of us don’t plan for the medical conditions and complications that arise in our life. They can come at a time when we least expect it and seeking medical care in a community outside your hometown can be difficult.  It creates a financial burden and can separate families.  Having a loved one near during a hospital stay is important in the care and recovery process. And financing out-of-pocket lodging can be costly.  Because of this, regional families traveling to Grand Forks for medical care sleep in their cars and waiting rooms…EVERYDAY. 

 “The care and compassion from people that didn’t even know us was comforting.  I thank God for homes like these and hope that one day, all cities will have a hospitality home.” – Joanne Barstad

Through community philanthropy and significant effort, the Sunshine Memorial Foundation and many local and regional community partners are constructing the Sunshine Hospitality Home right now.  We’re close with funding but need a hand up to finish our fundraising.  Can you help? Check Out All The Beautiful Lots Up For Bidding. Good Luck On Your Bidding And Thanks  Checking Out This Auction!
