Gala Dinner
Thursday, June 14, 2018
6:30 PM - 9:00 PM

Join us on Thursday evening at the Mayowood Stone Barn for good old Minnesota barbeque on the outskirts of Rochester, MN, with fantastic country scenery and homegrown Minnesota music. Sit and clap along or get up and kick your heels up, either way, you are sure to have a grand time.

We are also hosting tours of the Mayowood Mansion during this event, with no additional cost required. There is no registration or RSVP, and all you do is hop on the Trolley during the event and take a tour through Charles Mayo history. Tour times will be at 7:00pm and 8:00pm during the Gala Dinner. Transportation will be provided from the Gala Dinner to the Mansion and back.
