Annual Celebration 2017

May 11, 2017 @ 8:00AM — 10:00AM

Armed with truth, grit, and the sustaining support of friends like you,
we’re taking on the giants of inequality, ignorance, injustice, and indifference in our communities. And we’re winning.

Join us and help celebrate our 2017 award recipients—the people and organizations who are making a real difference in Greater Rochester.

We know that tackling tough problems requires a lot of hard work and inspiration…and that's what our Annual Celebration is all about. This event and fundraiser draws a unique blend of leaders from government, nonprofit, marketing, media and corporate communities who make our organization's work possible. Your generous support and participation at the Annual Celebration are critical to our success this year.

This year's keynote speaker is Robin Koval, CEO & President of Truth Initiative. Hear about her organization's battle with the tobacco industry for the lives of our youth. And help us take on the giants of injustice, inequality, and indifference in our communities.

We hope to see you there!
