Guests got their kicks at Gala4Goals at RiverCentre in St. Paul.

The event, which included a dinner, silent and live auctions and after party, supports retired pro soccer star and St. Paul native Tony Sanneh’s Sanneh Foundation. Through mentoring and soccer programs, the nonprofit aims to prepare youths for success.

Sanneh played for teams in the U.S. and Europe including the Minnesota Thunder.
