ESABA Gala 2018 @ Minnesota Humanities Center
May 31 @ 6:00 pm – 8:30 pm

ESABA's annual fundraiser will celebrate all the good rooted on the East Side! This year we’ve been asking, “What’s your East Side Favorite?” of our members and customers. At the ESABA Gala we will reveal some of the most popular answers from this East Side 50 Favorites Campaign in a Family Feud format drawing on the opinions of our 100 guests.

Tickets include special pricing for Nonprofit employees and Micro-businesses. Contact Paris to learn more. 

Opportunities to Feature your Business include:

50 Favorites Gift Card Wall - we're looking for 50 Gift Cards to businesses on the East Side to include in our interactive evening of highlights. Donate a gift card from your business or to one of your favorite businesses from the East Side. Contact Paris to learn more.

Silent Auction - A Tasting Menu with your restaurant? A hotel stay or getaway vacation? A pair of tickets for cultural events, sports? Ice Time. We are looking for great contributions that show off the East Side and our allies. Help us have a varied and fantastic Silent Auction by contributing some thing from your business.

Our goal this year is to raise $5000 to continue our outreach to Latino and Hmong businesses, small businesses, and emerging enterprises across the East Side and we invite you to help make that happen by sponsoring our Gala! Sponsors are included in event marketing on ESABA's website, social media, two event mailings, announcements at our monthly events and a press release to local media.
