The Event
Celebrating 89 years of service to the community, A Night at the Q will highlight the great work of the last year and unveil plans for the year ahead. With great food, entertainment, auctions, and games, it’s sure to be a signature event that you won’t want to miss.

Dynamic Hosts
Our hosts for the Gala have built exciting and expansive careers in the arts, journalism, and publishing. Roxane Battle spent years as an anchor on KARE11 and is the author of the best-selling book, Pockets of Joy, and T. Mychael Rambo is an Emmy Award-winning actor, vocalist, arts educator, and community organizer. Both Battle and Rambo spent their early years on stage at Penumbra Theatre and return to HQB as our Gala hosts! And what’s an event without a great meal?

Wonderful Food
Our annual Gala will be catered by Chef Justin Sutherland, of Handsome Hog (St. Paul) and Pearl & The Thief (Stillwater). Most recently, Chef Sutherland was a contestant on the Food Network’s Iron Chef America, where he battled veteran Chef Alex Guarnaschelli — and won! At the Gala, Chef Sutherland will prepare a range of delicious offerings to tempt your taste buds which will be accompanied by a cash bar. To conclude the evening, Chef Sutherland will be joined by Wendy’s House of Soul for an assortment of desserts.
