For 35 years, the annual Make Them Shine Gala has brought together many of the Twin Cities’ most influential decision-makers at our premiere event that raises donations and awareness through corporate sponsorships, silent and live auctions featuring exclusive and once-in-a-lifetime experiences, and a fund-a-need program highlighting families impacted by our services. In 2024, our fundraising goal is $650,000.
For every $1 you invest in early education and intervention, there is up to a $17 return. A child who gets access to early intervention has a greater chance for success. They enter kindergarten more prepared, they are less reliant on special education and government programs, and they are more likely to graduate and remain on a path to higher economic potential.
To explore sponsorship opportunities, email Corporate Relations Manager Robert Foster at RFoster@stdavidscenter.org
Registration for our 2024 event will open in January. If you are interested in volunteering for our event please email Aubrie at AMutch@stdavidscenter.org
At St. David’s Center for Child & Family Development, we rely on more than 500 volunteers annually to support our mission-driven work through a variety of hands-on volunteer opportunities. Our Make Them Shine Gala is our largest volunteer event of the year, and your time and talent are crucial to creating an event that will raise over $650,000 for our organization.
With your help, we will be able to reach more families across Minnesota, with services in children’s mental health, parental support, early childhood education, and early intervention. When you volunteer at St. David’s Center, you make a lasting impact.
