Buzzing conversation, sparkling lights and the glow of candles filled the spacious atrium of International Market Square in downtown Minneapolis, but the stars were the guests who attended the Make Them Shine gala.

The annual fundraising event helps St. David’s Center offer early childhood programs as well as intervention and services for children, teens and adults with developmental needs. The evening included live and silent auctions, cocktails and dinner, and concluded with an after party, where guests danced to music mixed by DJ Mad Mardigan.
