Join us as we gather to recognize 47 years of the Minnesota Keystone Program at our annual luncheon celebration. This year, we will be exploring the future of the Minnesota Keystone Program while pausing to celebrate and learn from the 2023 Minnesota Keystone honored companies: Goff Public, Fredrikson & Byron, P.A., and U.S. Bank. Explore how together, as a community, we can all go, "beyond philanthropy" at this feel-good inspirational event, moderated by Chanda Smith Baker. We look forward to seeing you there!
