2013 theGirls! Gala

Girls Gala 2013“50 Shades of Winter” was an appropriate theme for Citizens Bank Minnesota’s 2013 theGirls! Gala.  On January 30th, over 300 women braved the cold, icy winter weather to attend this year’s event!

Mankato Mosaic Theatre Company was the evening’s entertainment. They kept everyone laughing  with their fun interpretations of office workers trying to lose weight after the holidays, a young couple trying to have an anniversary dinner at a restaurant (with their two year old!), late night Walmart dancing, and last but not least, a Minnesotan’s version of the popular book series, “50 Shades of Grey”.

T & K Event Planners and Decorators had Turner Hall beautifully done up in black, grey and pink.  Turner Hall’s chicken wild rice soup served in bread bowls warmed all the guests and cheesecake for dessert made the meal just perfect!  Our Citizens bartenders kept the bar side running smoothly so the ladies were free to mingle and visit while employee members of theGirls! made sure everyone was served their meal in record time.

The night was capped off with a drawing for ten door prizes. One lucky winner even walked away with a Coach wristlet, donated by Citizens Agency!

Wonderful food, great entertainment and a night out with some fabulous ladies –I’d say the event was a success!  We were extremely pleased with the turnout and hope to continue making the annual Gala something everyone looks forward to!
