The fifth annual Bash4Guild, held at the Minneapolis Club in downtown Minneapolis, provided an opportunity for friends new and old to mingle, sip signature cocktails, nosh on appetizers, listen to live music and take part in live auctions — all while raising money to help people with mental illnesses lead quality lives.

Funds raised at this year’s gathering will go to help Guild Incorporated’s Equilibrium, a youth services program that works with people ages 16 to 20 throughout the Twin Cities area.
