For over 20 years, Twin Cities R!SE has provided work skills and personal development training for Minnesotans living in generational poverty. We transform lives through living wage jobs, helping eliminate the cycle of poverty. Our 8th annual Gala will be an evening of inspiring stories and great entertainment to raise critically needed funds for an important cause.

This year, we are pleased to honor long-time Twin Cities R!SE Board member, Tom Swain.

Gather together for a special evening to eat, drink, mingle and reflect on over 20 years of lives being changed and transformed through the work of Twin Cities R!SE. Hear from past participants as they share their personal stories of  transformation and tell how our communities have changed for the better because of the work of Twin Cities R!SE. 

Guests will  enjoy dinner and hand-selected wines. VIP guests will kick off the evening with a private pre-reception party featuring hors d’oeuvres and an exclusive wine flight experience.
