Annual Gala

Global Minnesota celebrates BIG with its 70th Anniversary Virtual Gala this June 18! Here’s a chance to renew connections and unite to support Global Minnesota from home. Dress up, dress casual, invite friends to join you, but plan on an entertaining evening that looks back and looks ahead, with the added attraction of our Tour the World Auction.

Everyone is invited to bid in the auction, but you must register (free!) to see the items and bid. Families, individuals, and corporations can also support Global Minnesota’s important work with sponsorship packages that come with a variety of benefits.

Come join Global Minnesota for a very special evening celebration and auction. Help us honor our first 70 years and welcome the next 70! 

The Event

This year it’s virtual!  See what we have in store for celebration options and opportunities.

Preview some auction items and learn how you can donate and also bid: The Tour the World Auction will let you do just that, through travel packages, enticing cultural dinners, and fun “stay vacation” opportunities for the entire family.
