Sweet Success 2021 was a Success!

Thank you for buzzing into the sweetest awards gala of the season! We hope you enjoyed a star-studded evening of entertainment and awards spotlighting success stories of YWCA St. Paul’s program participants, volunteers and change makers in the community.

The event was hosted by T. Mychael Rambo and featured musical entertainment from Singers Annie Mack and Thomasina Petrus, Pianist Thom West and Violinist Emilia Mettenbrink.

Thanks to your generous support, we have raised over $50,000. But, we still have more to go to reach our goal of $85,000. Please consider making a donation to support YWCA St. Paul. YOUR donations help transform lives.

A special thank you to our Change Maker Honoree, Rebekkah Lamar Brunson, Co-Founder of Sweet Troo•vi Waffle and Assistant Coach of the Minnesota Lynx. Rebekkah received this recognition in honor of her exceptional leadership and commitment to racial justice and women’s empowerment, and her work to promote positive change in our society.

We also want to thank our amazing sponsors for helping to make this event a success.
