2020 HOH Postponed FAQ

What’s the latest on HOH 2020?

The committee is busy working on the plan for a rescheduled 2020 event. Stay tuned for updates as we have them!

I’ve registered and paid, and want to hold my spot.  What do I have to do?

Nothing! We will assume you want your spot held, unless you cancel your registration as outlined below.

I’ve registered and paid, but I’m choosing to cancel my registration.  What do I have to do?

We completely understand. Please email our Treasurer, Kay Nierengarten, at kay@northwindcatalog.com by March 19, 2020, the day HOH was supposed to start. Kay will process your registration refund. You will forfeit your spot in our rescheduled 2020 event. However, if you were in line to pick your skip and choose to cancel, you will retain your position for HOH 2021’s rankings — and be a part of our early reservation process for both our rescheduled 2020 event and HOH 2021.

I purchased tickets for the Sweep Away Hunger Fundraising Dinner, what should I do?

The Sweep Away Hunger Fundraising Dinner has been postponed. We will hold your tickets for the rescheduled event.

If you would like a refund instead, please email our Treasurer, Kay Nierengarten, at kay@northwindcatalog.com by March 19, 2020, the previously scheduled date of the dinner.  She will process a refund for you on or after April 1, which is when we will receive the funds from the ticketing company, Eventbrite.

What happens to my online pledges?

All online pledges will go directly to our charities: ISD 709 Families in Transition Program, United Way of Northeastern Minnesota’s Buddy Backpack Program, and the Boys and Girls Club of the Northland Healthy Meals Program. #ForTheKids

If you were in line to pick your skip, your pledge totals still count for our postponed event. Fundraising via your GoFundMe page can continue — your accounts will stay open.  You now have even more time to raise money!

The Hot Shots Game voting has been suspended until a rescheduled event and confirmed skip list can be finalized. All funds raised from voting will go directly to our charities.  #ForTheKids

What should I do with cash/check donations?

Please send all cash and check donations to our Treasurer, Kay Nierengarten, at 5654 Chalstrom Drive, Saginaw, MN 55779. Please include your name so you get proper credit for the donations. You may also send funds to Kay via Paypal, at payments@hohduluth.org. If you have questions, please contact Kay directly via phone: 218-390-8951, or email: kay@northwindcatalog.com

What should I do with any basket items, silent auction items, or gift cards to donate?

Please hold on to all items and bring them to our rescheduled HOH 2020 event or HOH 2021!

Why curl in the House of Hearts?

19th Annual Event
The 19th House of Hearts will be our biggest and best HOH yet!  The planning committee has all kinds of surprises up their sleeves.  You don’t want to miss it!

Curl with a Champion
When you participate in the House of Hearts you will be placed on a team that has a mix of amateurs and professional curlers.  There is an air of excitement in the rink.  The professional curlers that play in this spiel are excited to meet you and share the sport of curling.  You will be able to play along side each other and you may even learn a few tips!

Raise Money for a Good Cause
The House of Hearts Charity Bonspiel benefits Project Joy, which raises money to fight childhood hunger.

What people are saying about HOH…

It’s one big group/family party. Everyone is included and made to feel welcome. No one is left out. The first night….the excitement of picking teams…all of the people involved…making new friends…very well planned and has a great flow of fun events and fundraising.


It’s a lot of fun to play and hang out with really high-level curlers. Plus it’s just a fun spiel!
