Thanks for joining us for our Evening of Excellence Virtual House Party

AchieveMpls CEO Danielle Grant

We had a wonderful time at our Evening of Excellence Virtual House Party on November 12, with hundreds of supporters and friends joining our live stream from across the country.

Our CEO and emcee CEO Danielle Grant honored our excellence and leadership award recipients, introduced four of our amazing program alums and shared stories about our equity-focused work with students during the challenges of COVID-19. Kurt Johnson was also on hand to help raise critical funds for our career and college readiness programs and inspire participation in our online auction.

Special thanks to our generous presenting sponsor Best Buy, platinum sponsor U.S. Bank, diamond sponsor Jones Day, and gold sponsors Cargill, KPMG, MHealth, Maslon, Morgan Lewis and UCare. You made our event possible!

And we’re so grateful to each and every one of you who joined us for the event, invited your friends and family to learn about our work, participated in our online auction or made a financial gift for our work with students. Thanks to the generous support of you and our sponsors, we surpassed our fundraising goals for the event!
