On Friday, November 7 at the Loews Minneapolis Hotel, more than 1,200 Twin Cities women and men convened at Maiden Minnesota, a fun, socializing and charitable shopping event featuring some of Minnesota’s best women-owned businesses.

Maiden Minnesota 2014 was buzzing with exclusive sales and merchandise from more than 35 “Maidens”, many of which have been recognized as leaders in design for fashion, jewelry, accessories, home décor, specialty food items and more.

Now in its eighth year, Maiden Minnesota chose Project Success as the 2014 Charity Partner (Project Success was also selected as the charity partner in 2011 and 2012). Proceeds from ticket sales and gift bags went toward supporting the work we do to help young people dream and plan for their futures. The event also featured a silent auction with more than 300 incredible items — some donated by this year’s “Maidens” — and 100% of the proceeds benefitted Project Success.

We are so grateful to Maiden Minnesota for the three years of partnership and to the guests who attended and supported our work – thank you!!

Check out our stories!

We were thrilled that Project Success was able to share in some of the buzz of this fabulous event:
