Support Kids with New Beds and Dream Kits!
We're excited to celebrate our 10th year of this wonderful family-friendly event with you as we support 1700 kids in our community with new beds and Dream Kits this year!
Minneapolis' "big fun string band" Luke Warm & the Cool Hands returns for the 10th year, along with music by Jazicality and Tess & the Anchormen. We'll have fun games for the kids, craft beers by Bauhaus Brew Labs and Broken Clock Brewing Cooperative, delicious appetizers, and our always exciting silent auction. Nyia Harris joins us as our emcee this year.
Help us celebrate our roots, while we dream big for our future!

Our Emcee: Nyia Harris
We're excited to have Nyia Harris as this year's emcee of Beds & Bluegrass!
Nyia was volunteering for My Very Own Bed on the day of our 7,000 bed delivery and was gracious enough to be interviewed on WCCO. Watch the story.
“How could you not want kids to be warm and safe in their beds? And have one of their own? So it's a great organization to be affiliated with," Nyia Harris said.

About My Very Own Bed
Since our founding in 2014, My Very Own Bed has had one goal: to provide new beds and Dream Kits (bedding, books, and stuffed animals) to children moving into stable housing. The impact of a new bed is immediate; improving where and how children sleep improves their overall health and well-being.
With support from our volunteers, donors, and referral partners, we have reached almost 7000 children throughout the Twin Cities metro area since 2014. As our funding and network grow, so does our ability to impact even more kids' lives. Learn more at myveryownbed.org.
