On Thursday, May 19, 2016, PRISM will host its biggest fundraising event of the year: our 3rd annual "Taste of the 'Burbs"! 

This event generates significant revenue to support PRISM's food, housing and clothing assistance programs, which ensure that our most vulnerable, marginalized community members receive dignified, immediate and tangible help. 

Register today and join 300 civic leaders, friends and other PRISM supporters for an evening of:

  • delicious food and desserts from Nonna Rosa’s, Benihana, Frankie’s, Pickles, Culver’s, Nothing Bundt Cake, Milton's, D'Amico and Sons, The Lone Grazer and Red Tail Meat Company
  • silent and live auctions
  • live music
  • a celebration of PRISM’s past, a look at PRISM’s future…and more!

This year's event sponsors include: Best Buy, MN Twins, Central Bank, Cub Foods, Herring Legal, Jaguar Land Rover of Minneapolis, and Valley Community Presbyterian Church.

This event sells out every year, so we’ve increased capacity for the 2016 event by approximately 100 seats!


When is the event?

Our 2016 Taste of the ‘Burbs will be held on Thursday, May 19, 2016, from 5:00 PM - 8:30 PM. From 5–7 you’ll enjoy food, drinks, silent auction, and live music. From 7–8 we’ll facilitate a wonderful program and live auction. Then stay and mingle until 8:30!
