One Future Luncheon

On October 31, 2017, NAZ hosted its 3rd annual One Future fundraising luncheon at The Depot in downtown Minneapolis.

Minnesota’s own Michele Norris, “one of the most trusted voices in American journalism,” and the first African-American female news host for NPR, delivered the keynote speech.

Sondra Samuels, NAZ President and CEO, offered a powerful message about how NAZ is closing the achievement gap and supporting our youth on a path to college. NAZ scholar and North High senior, Damon Brown, shared his NAZ experiences. The audience was inspired by his leadership and commitment to reaching his goal to attend university next fall.

The luncheon is a one-hour celebration of the positive change that is transforming north Minneapolis. With your support, we are creating a bright future for all our children! Thank you to all of our 2017 sponsors listed below and everyone who attended!

Stay tuned for more information on our upcoming 2018 luncheon.
