For the Make Them Shine gala, St. David’s Center for Children & Family Development pulled out all the stops, with live and silent auctions, dinner and dancing at the University of Minnesota’s McNamara Alumni Center.

The event, which featured Frank Vascellaro as auctioneer and Rena Sarigianopoulos as host, helped raise funds for the Minnetonka center’s preschool, pediatric therapy and mental health clinic.

Now in its 30th year, St. David’s just opened the Harman Center for Child & Family Wellbeing in Minneapolis.
