Join us for Springtime in Paris, our 12th Annual Gala Benefit! This hybrid event will include a virtual broadcasted program and auctions, as well as an outdoors, in-person, safely-distanced cocktail reception at our center. Attendance to the in-person event will be limited, with unlimited attendees participating virtually. You can safely support AFMSP in whatever way you are most comfortable! Our biggest fundraising event of the year, this is the most impactful time to show your generous support through donations and online auctions.
All proceeds of the gala support the operations and programs of Alliance Française Mpls/St Paul. Your generosity ensures that our French cultural center can continue to promote language learning, cultural awareness and appreciation for the French-speaking cultures that are part of our Minnesotan community. Merci mille fois pour votre soutien !
Seated tickets to the event are sold out! However, we do have limited number of "standing room" tickets at cocktail
Prefer to tune in virtually?
Anyone is welcome to tune in, at no cost, or show your support by purchasing a virtual ticket.
You can bid on your smart phone, tablet or computer. Peruse the items, set maximum bids, and receive notifications when you’re no longer in the lead. The auctions will open at noon on May 24 and close at 7 pm on June 2.
Join in the fun, bidding on our most exclusive auction experiences online with auctioneer Kurt Johnson. We’ll kick off the evening with our Fund-A-Need, followed by our live auction and raffle drawing. You can participate regardless of whether you’re at the Joly Center or at home!
Thank you to all for your support, especially during these unprecedented times. Your bids and donations directly support the educational and cultural programs of Alliance Française Mpls/St Paul.
