Join us at the Fraser Gala, presented by Meristem | Cresset on Friday, Nov. 3, 2023, at the Renaissance Minneapolis Hotel, The Depot. This year, our gala will transport guests to the whimsical world of Candy Land.

Perhaps you’ll enjoy a stroll through the Peppermint Forest, or maybe you’ll bump into Queen Frostine. The night is sure to be sweet with specialty cocktails, a decadent dinner, exciting entertainment and most importantly, an inspiring testimonial from a Fraser family.

Like Candy Land, everyone’s path through life is different, filled with peaks and difficult passages. For many of our families, the difficult passages are long, frightening and dark. But because of generous donors, these families know they aren’t alone. The gala allows our donors and families to come together and reflect on how their support provides individuals and families in our community with access to quality healthcare, housing, education, employment and support services.

Sponsorship opportunities are available. In addition to providing vital support to individuals and families in our community, Fraser event sponsors receive unique marketing benefits, such as signage, social media advertising and brand positioning at our events. Email Sr. Special Events and Volunteer Program Manager Rose Rosario at rose.rosario@fraser.org for information on how you can expand your brand.

Are you interested in donating a gift basket, experience, item or gift card to support the gala? Contact taylor.raschke@fraser.org.
