In honor and recognition of young talent in the Twin Ports, Mayors Don Ness and Bruce Hagen join together to declare Nov. 15 the first-ever “Young Leaders Day.”
In coordination with the Young Leaders Fund of the Duluth Superior Area Community Foundation, this proclamation formally recognizes the region’s up-and-coming leaders and thanks them for their contributions to creating and sustaining a vibrant, thriving region.
To celebrate young leaders, the fund is set to host Convivial, an event to raise awareness of and engage young adults in philanthropy. Event attendees have the opportunity to network with peers and learn about the impact YLF has in the region, while also enjoying entertainment by local folk group Coyote and a performance by Renegade Theater, a past YLF grantee.
Nov. 15 is also “Give to the Max Day,: a statewide celebration encouraging Minnesotans to come together in support of nonprofits that make a big difference in our communities. Through the combination of Young Leaders Day and Give to the Max Day, a statewide spotlight shines on young leaders in the Twin Ports.
All contributions made Nov. 15 to YLF will be matched dollar-for-dollar by the ALLETE Chairmen’s Circle Challenge, a $135,000 matching gift from past and present chairs of ALLETE Inc.
