October 19, 2017, Thursday - Preservation Alliance Benefit Gala and Minnesota Preservation Awards at Aria

Time: 5:00pm - 10:00pm

Location: Aria Minneapolis, 105 North 1st Street

Save the Date for our annual Preservation Alliance Benefit Gala and Minnesota Preservation Awards! We’ll be honoring Charlene Roise and John Rupp, as well as the best of recent rehabilitation and reuse projects throughout the state. Thursday, October 19 at Aria at the Jeune Lune.

As Executive Director of the Preservation Alliance of Minnesota (PAM), I am pleased to invite you to this year's 2017 Preservation Alliance Benefit Gala. Attending is a great way to support the programming and mission of PAM and honor exemplary individuals and projects from across the state through the 33rd Annual Minnesota Preservation Awards. This year’s event promises to be more memorable and dynamic than ever.

Tickets are now on sale and always sell out! Reserve your tickets now.

We received such great feedback last year that we are keeping the same format. The night will feature a “party” format with live music during two engaging receptions. That’s right, NO TABLES!! You will not be stuck at a table all evening with a very small choice of food to enjoy…or not enjoy! This format will offer more of everything - more food, more music, more entertainment, and more opportunities to meet and interact with industry leaders, peers, and incredible community members from all over Minnesota.

Following the auction and awards presentations, celebrate the lives and work of the award winners and the fundraising effort at our fabulous After Party right there in the main hall featuring even more delicious nibbles, plus desserts, and great music.

In addition to celebrating the work of eight projects, we are incredibly proud this year to be honoring two exemplary individuals:

  • The President’s Award – awarded this year to Charlene Roise - president of Hess, Roise and Company
  • The Executive Director’s Award – awarded to John Rupp – owner of Commonwealth Properties
