Spread Your Wings Thursday

The biennial IOCP gala finds a new home for the same great cause this year.

Interfaith Outreach Community Partners' biennial Spread Your Wings Gala is coming up Thursday, June 20. "It’s going to be a fantastic event with ... a beautiful new venue, a client speaker, live auction, exciting experiences for purchase, IOCP program tables, a signature cocktail and more," says Erin Anderson, marketing and communications manager for IOCP.This year's theme is "Great Expectations," and the event takes place from 6 to 9:30 p.m. at the Minneapolis Marriott Northwest in Brooklyn Park. The change in venue is to a larger experience, which is addressing previous years' sold-out status. WCCO anchor and reporter Jason DeRusha is this year's emcee.Spread Your Wings began 14 years ago; tickets are $125 (or $100 for emerging leaders younger than 35).WHAT: Spread Your Wings, annual gala for Interfaith Outreach Community PartnersWHEN: 6 to 9:30 p.m. June 20WHERE: Minneapolis Marriott Northwest, 7025 Northland Drive N., Brooklyn Park;763.536.8300COST: $100-$125INFO: iocp.ejoinme.org/SYW2013
