25th Anniversary Celebration

April 21, 2016 • 4:00 p.m.
Aria Event Center • Minneapolis, MN 55405

—Registration is closed for this event.—

The Link welcomed more than 200 guests as we honored our founders Jim Marshall, Oscar Reed and Leonard Lindquist with Legacy Awards, recognized Jeff Bauer for his Community Leadership in changing the way our community works with sexually exploited youth and presented a Youth Leadership award to Reashondra Walker who is making a difference in the community through her leadership and involvement.


The event raised more than $107,000 through sponsorship, attendance, silent auction and generous donations! Proceeds from the evening will help The Link fund programs throughout the seven county metro area, juvenile justice programming and programming for victims of sex trafficking. This funding will allow The Link to continue to reach out to some of our community’s most vulnerable youth and young families to build the skills and resiliency they need to thrive.


We are honored to have Senator Klobuchar, Inspector Michael Sullivan and Gene Scapanski share their stories of how The Link programming has influenced their work and gained their support throughout the years.


Thank you to everyone that helped to make this evening possible, it was a night filled with celebration. It is because of your support and participation we are able to serve another 3,500 youth and young families this year.
