Steffany was a stay at home mom for over 25 years.. She has spent the last 30 years volunteering and raising money for schools and local charities. She has been married to her husband Tom for 29 years and has 3 children. They reside in Maple Grove, MN, but love to go to their cabin up north whenever they get the chance. When not working on her "projects" as she calls them or following her children's many activities, Steffany loves to pursue her hobbies of: photography, travel or just hanging out with her dogs and beloved animals. She is also a 9 year breast cancer survivor. She likes to say this one last, so as to make it just a small piece of who she is.

Pause 4 Paws
Pause 4 Paws is a unique fundraising organization founded in 2011 with one goal: To stop the suffering and needless deaths of dogs and cats. We provide the infrastructure of support needed by animal rescues in Minnesota; raising money for medical expenses, offering resources like food and supplies, and networking to find forever homes. Together, we can save the lives of homeless dogs and cats. Every day, more than 9,000 pets are killed in America's shelters simply because they do not have a home. Each one is a valued life worth saving. 9,000. That number should be zero. And it can be. For more information on how you can help... www.pause4pawsmn.org
This carnival is to bring a little happiness into the lives of children going through health issues, struggles and hard times. Volunteers in the community, high school students and local non profit organizations put on the entire event. We provide all the games, prizes and volunteers to help the day go smoothly while letting the children have fun.
Inspire and Flourish.....It is something we can all do. It is something we can help others do. It is something we should do. There are so many ways we can make a difference in each other's lives. We can lend a helping hand, donate something ~ whether it be goods/supplies or our time. Watching someone else's life change just because you decided to help ~ is a wonderful thing.
All of our auxillary events are put on and run by volunteers. Monies raised from the "Mobile Memories Photo Booths" helps to support these fundraising projects.
