KOM 15th Anniversary Gala

November 16 @ 5:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Save the date for KOM’s 15th Anniversary Gala: November 16th, 2023!

This year, the KOM gala will be a joyful opportunity for past event attendees and new supporters to celebrate our achievements and look to the future as we fulfill our new mission: building on the strengths of refugee and immigrant communities and remove barriers to achieving economic, social, and cultural wellbeing.

Join us for a special evening of fundraising and community-building at Inwood Oaks Event Center in Oakdale, MN. We’re excited to welcome community leaders, elected officials, service partners, volunteers and donors for a social hour, dinner, live performances, a raffle drawing, and main program.

More info coming soon!
