Luncheon Partners

Thank you to everyone who supported our 2018 Spring Luncheon and celebration of the 2018 Class of Russell Kantor Next Steps Fund Awardees! Your support meant the world to our awardees and our Corpsmembers. This is our premier fundraising event for the year, and your generous contributions allow us to award thousands of dollars in scholarships and make it possible for us to continue to provide hundreds of Corpsmembers every year meaningful work experience, continuing education, and help in alleviating the barriers that stand in the way of their success.

We invite you to browse through the Tribute Book from this year’s event for more words of appreciation for our award recipients and our awardees.
