EVOLVE To Host Champions For Children Gala


EVOLVE is thrilled to host the very first Champions For Children Gala. We invite you to join us on October 26 at the Historic Mill City Museum. Our evening is themed “All That Jazz!” This fundraiser will support EVOLVE’s programs. Our programs of Adoption, Foster Care, Therapeutic Services, and Pregnancy Support, and finally, Education and Family Services will benefit from this evening.

The Champions For Children Gala is an amazing opportunity for you to support EVOLVE directly. The evening will begin with a cocktail hour followed by raffles, a plated dinner, program, and a live auction. The evening will also include a Fund-A-Need.

A Historic Night

The Mill City Museum has stunning views of the Stone Arch Bridge and Mississippi River. The Museum is right next to Gold Medal Park and The Guthrie. We are thrilled to showcase such an important part of Minnesota History. We can’t wait to come together to support EVOLVE Family Services at our fall gala.
