The Gala

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. Between Emcee Chris Egert of KSTP TV and our Musical Guest Molly and the Danger Band, we guarantee it will be a milestone event for our organization!
