Our 16th anniversary event will be emceed by Emmy Award winning journalist Vineeta Sawkar, and will feature a happy hour with hors d'oeuvres, drinks and networking, dinner with great food and wine, live auction, inspiring stories from our students, alums and volunteers, and our first annual Leadership and Mentor of the Year awards.

Every dollar we raise helps us close the opportunity gap and ensure that even more Minneapolis students can access our personalized career and college planning support, on-the-job skills and professional experience through STEP-UP internships, and mentoring from our caring Graduation Coaches. With your generous support, we're helping thousands of young people graduate with the tools, connections and confidence they need to excel after high school.

Thanks to our generous event sponsors!
