As one of the premier events in the Twin Cities, the 28th annual Children’s Minnesota Star Gala brings together members of our community to support the health and well-being of all kids. Proceeds benefit Children’s Minnesota and the care it provides to kids and their families.

Children’s invites you to consider joining in on the festivities on Saturday, April 13, 2019, at the historic Depot in Minneapolis. Tables are available for purchase as sponsorships only.

Children’s aims to be every family’s essential partner in raising healthier children. Participation in the Star Gala supports the organization’s genomic medicine department. When a newborn baby has a mysterious illness, time is precious. The sooner doctors find answers, the sooner they can treat — and save — the tiniest patients. Genome sequencing used to take 30 to 60 days but now can be done in just a week. It’s expensive, but the benefits far outweigh the costs. Doctors get answers quickly, enabling them to begin the right treatment right away. With your help, Children’s can ensure that all kids have a chance to experience happy, healthy lives.
