Event: The 30th Annual Dawn of a Dream Gala, held November 6 at The Depot.

Cause: More than $950,000 was raised to support childhood cancer research at the University of Minnesota.

Dress Code: The 1,000 guests were immaculately dressed, donning black ties and pearls for the night’s festivities.

Going Once, Going Twice: The live auction featured getaways to Dubai and seats at New York Fashion Week shows.

Fun and Games: Guests paid to play games for a chance to win golf packages, watches, or pearls. The night also featured a “wine pull,” in which guests drew corks to win their very own bottle of vino.

See and Be Seen: American Idol winner Taylor Hicks took the microphone at 10 p.m. and kept the celebration going into the night.
