About the soirée
cocktails for a cause
Join us on July 30, 2016, for the 12th annual MBA Soirée, a night of good fun for a great cause!
Last year, the event was attended by more than 375 alumni, interns, friends, and their guests from all over the Twin Cities—representing over 20 MBA programs.
Since the first Soirée in 2005, more than $100,000 has been giving to charities including:
- The Children's Cancer Research Fund
- The Make-A-Wish Foundation
- The Miracles of Mitch Foundation
- Bolder Options
- Fight vs. Blindness
- YMCA Twin Cities
- Open Arms
This year, proceeds from the Soirée will benefit three major educational charities in the Twin Cities area.
