The Sanneh Foundation, a Minnesota-based nonprofit addressing the range of social determinants that empower youth and unite community, hosted its 11th Annual Gala 4 Goals Fundraising Event, which was presented by Atomic Data. For the first time ever, the Gala 4 Goals was held in a virtual format which streamed live to more than 780 households on Saturday, February 21.

The virtual event featured 50 minutes of both live and pre-recorded content that celebrated the impacts that Sanneh has made through their various programs. You can replay the live stream or catch the individual program videos at watch.gala4goals.com.

Sponsors and ticket holders enjoyed a unique watch experience with take-home meals prepared by chef David Fhima and supported by Justin Sutherland, Brian Ingram, JD Fratzke, Patrick O’Hare, and Sam Lobash. Cocktail kits provided by Gray Duck Vodka as well as additional Sanneh swag items were also included in watch-party kits.

Thanks to the generosity of the community, the event raised over $550,000 that will go directly to support Sanneh’s work with youth and families in 2021. To learn more, visit thesannehfoundation.org.
