PAM Gala Event


The 2017 Annual Preservation Alliance Benefit Gala and Minnesota Preservation Awards were a great success!

Local improv comedy troupe The Theater of Public Policy were such a great addition to this year’s event. This one-of-a-kind local theater company spoke straight to our preservationist hearts – and to our funny bones. Live music provided by The Explainers provided the perfect variety of music. They were even able to break the curse of “nobody shall dance at a preservation event!”

It was the full house of generous attendees that made all the difference. Everyone had a great time but it was their giving that made our fundraising for the night hit more than $130,000. We are speechless with gratitude and looking forward to putting every dollar to good use.
