Due to recent health concerns, we are postponing our It's in the Bag! event until Summer 2020.
More details to come.
See a letter from our President Mary Ella Pratte HERE regarding FRIENDS and Covid-19.
This is the main fundraising event of FRIENDS of the Minnesota Orchestra, with proceeds to support our award-winning music education programs, Kinder Konzerts, Kinder Konzerts on the Road, Meet A Musician/ACCENT, and Young Artist Competition.
Silent Auction with carefully-curated handbags and goods, intriguing gift certificates, and unique party experiences will be offered for bidding. Enjoy a Mai Tai as you partake of guilt-free shopping for a good cause.
The auction will be followed by a delicious luncheon with a performance by 2016 Young Artist Competition Grand Prize winner, pianist Kyle Orth; Classical MPR’s Brian Newhouse is our always-entertaining keynote speaker.
It’s in the Bag! culminates with a drawing for the winners of our three fabulous raffle prizes:
Grand Prize: winner’s pick of one of 32 exotic and exciting destination experiences
Second Prize: Private suite to a Lynx game for 22 guests
Third Prize: One-of-a-kind designer necklace
Information about purchasing raffle tickets coming soon.
