A previous volunteer for the St. Paul-based Children’s Hospital Association (CHA), Stacy Jacobson lends her project management and event planning skills to support the organization’s numerous fundraising events and initiatives. This includes CHA’s 2019 auction and gala event, which brought in $18,000 to support programs and services at Children’s Minnesota. Following that success, Jacobson stepped into the lead chair for CHA’s Table Talk event in 2019 and 2020, which raised a total of $60,000. Despite the pandemic, Jacobson led an effort to completely redesign the event, ensuring CHA could fulfill its yearly commitment to the hospital. Now, as lead chair of the governance committee, Jacobson is a vital community connector, fostering connections among the CHA board, volunteers, and the local community to support pediatric care in the Twin Cities.
