KOM’s 2017 Annual Gala

October 12 @ 5:30 pm - 9:00 pm

We are pleased to announce that the Karen Organization of Minnesota’s 7th Annual Gala will take place Thursday, October 12th from 5:30 – 9:00 p.m. at the University of St. Thomas James B. Woulfe Alumni Hall. We are excited to move to a new, larger venue after last year’s event sold out with nearly 300 guests attending. We welcome you to attend and offer your support in aiding KOM’s programs that help refugees from Burma settle, integrate, and become self-sufficient in their new home.

KOM’s Annual Gala is a special occasion to show appreciation for our longtime friends and supporters and to welcome newcomers who would like to learn more about our work with refugees from Burma. The night will include a social hour with a cash bar, a silent auction, dinner, and a short program to highlight the successes of KOM, celebrate the rich cultures of the people we serve and an appreciation for the diverse communities in Minnesota. Proceeds from the gala make it possible for KOM to respond to the needs of refugees from Burma that are not funded by other programs, such as providing transportation, assisting families in emergencies, and helping an average of 150 walk-in clients per week with their various challenges in adjusting to their new home.
