2022 Fraser Gala, presented by U.S. Bank

The Fraser Gala, presented by U.S. Bank, will transport you to the shores of the ocean to celebrate the spirt of the boy in “The Starfish Story”  that shows us one person can make a big impact, and when many people join together, a ripple can build into a tidal wave of change.

The fable of “The Starfish Story” tells the tale of hundreds of starfish that were marooned on the beach when the tide went out. A little boy was walking along, gently throwing them back into the ocean to save them, when an older gentleman pointed out there were hundreds of starfish on the beach. “You can’t possibly make a difference,” the man said. At that, the little boy tossed another starfish into the water and replied, “I made a difference for that one.”

Join us and be the change for our community on Saturday, Oct. 15, 2022, both in-person at the Hilton Minneapolis and virtually online. You will experience an unforgettable evening of dinner, cocktails, entertainment, and inspiring speakers. Most importantly, you will help raise funds to ensure more individuals and families in our community have access to critical, lifesaving healthcare, education, housing and career planning and employment services for autism, mental health, and developmental and intellectual disabilities.
