The Passport to Smiles Gala is Children’s Surgery International’s largest fundraising event. Each year, volunteers, patrons, friends, providers and community members gather to celebrate, recognize and support the work of the organization. The evening offers a social hour, three-course dinner, presentations from community leaders and silent and live auctions. It is a highly anticipated event, unforgettable in the way that it reinforces the importance of Children’s Surgery International’s mission and work.
The 2014 Gala Planning Committee is hard at work planning our 10th annual event which is scheduled for May 3, 2014 at the newly remodeled Millennium Hotel in Minneapolis. Rest assured it will be a milestone for our organization! Watch for our "Save the Date" announcement in early 2014.
Thanks to all who attended the 9th Annual Passport to Smiles Gala!
The 2013 Gala was a great success! This year's event took place at the Sofitel Hotel Bloomington on April 20, 2013. It was a full evening with great food, live and silent auctions, wonderful entertainment, and heartfelt presentations from Sally Lannin and Kofi Boahene. Thanks also to our emcee Board Member John Hehre.
