Spring Gala

The NAMI Spring Gala is an annual fundraiser to support NAMI Minnesota’s programs and mission. It’s a night of meaningful fun, including a program with speakers, silent and live auctions, dinner, live music and dancing. For more information or if you are interested in sponsoring the Spring Gala, please contact events@namimn.org.


NAMI Minnesota will hold its 26th annual Spring Gala: Hope Springs Eternal on Saturday, May 11 at the Hilton in downtown Minneapolis. Come celebrate with us! Get Your Tickets Today!

This year our spring garden theme highlights the hope that NAMI and people like you inspire in the lives of thousands of others. With your support, we are the largest grassroots mental health organization in Minnesota.  We continually develop and implement our family programs, recruit and train speakers on recovery, provide peer support groups, education classes, suicide prevention and awareness-raising efforts, and create community partnerships. We are a leader in our tireless advocacy to build an effective mental health system. It’s always springtime where there’s hope. Join us on Saturday, May 11, and affirm that “Hope Springs Eternal.”

Our Gala features a silent auction, plated dinner, live auction and fund-a-need. Springtime attire, including floral fabulousness, is encouraged but come as you wish! Last year our sponsors, donors, and attendees raised over $107,000 at this exciting celebration of our work.

All Gala proceeds support NAMI Minnesota’s mission of championing justice, dignity and respect for all people affected by mental illnesses.



The Spring Gala returns for its 26th year to provide critical financial support for programs, education, and community outreach and support.  Get Tickets or Sponsor Us!

Sponsorships start at $300 and include tickets to the Gala featuring a seated dinner, both silent and live auctions, and dancing with live music. A number of sponsorship levels are available including tickets and a variety of promotional opportunities.
