On May 11, 2021, GiGi’s Playhouse Fargo was completely lost in a devastating fire. Over the last thirty days the Board of Directors, staff and volunteers have remained focused on reopening our doors to continue serving our community!
We are filled with gratitude on how our community has come together to help us rebuild the Playhouse and serve our families. Thank you all for your support of space, time, gifts and donations to help us persevere during this time.
Highlights over the last 30 days:
- Resumed limited program schedule in person with Fantastic Friends and GiGiFIT Infant/Toddler.
- Moved for Acceptance on June 5th for our annual Walk & Fest! Great community events for families to come together in person and virtual to accelerate acceptance in the Fargo/Moorhead community and raise funds to rebuild the playhouse.
- Secured temporary space to host limited program schedule, work space for staff, and a place for families. Business hour details coming soon.
GiGi’s Playhouse Fargo could not do this without our communities support. We are also grateful for the amazing resources and support from the team at the Dakota Medical Foundation and High Impact Institute. Right now your donations are matched by the Engelstad Foundation, Dakota Medical Foundation, Alex Stern Foundation, and FM Raise Your Spirits.
Thank you for your ongoing support as we rise together to rebuild the playhouse!
