Join us for our annual fundraising gala as we explore South African culture, highlight U.S.-South Africa relations, and connect Minnesotans to our African partner. Featuring fine South African-inspired cuisine and entertainment, the Tour the World live and silent auctions, and guest of honor Consul General Phumzile Mazibuko, the gala is set to be a one-of-a-kind evening that raises critical funds to support Global Minnesota’s mission.
