Celebration of Colombia Gala

June 17, 2017 @ 4:30 pm CST

Online registration is closed. Onsite registration will be available, with limited seating.

Rich in tradition with a diverse history, Colombia has undergone a remarkable transformation in recent years that has placed the nation on a path to peace and prosperity.

Join us for our annual fundraising gala as we explore Colombian culture, highlight U.S.-Colombia relations, and connect Minnesotans to our South American partner. Featuring fine Colombian cuisine and entertainment as well as the Tour the World live and silent auctions, the gala is set to be a one-of-a-kind Colombian celebration.

This unique cultural and fundraising event draws more than 300 of Global Minnesota’s well-traveled supporters and raises critical funds for ongoing educational and cultural programs designed to help Minnesotans live, work, and lead globally.
