2015 Get-Together in the Books!
Fabulous guests, great conversation and exciting special guests and activities -- that's the inaugural Great Minnesota Media Get-Together in a sentence!
Hosted by Boua Xiong of KARE 11 and featuring inaugural ThreeSixty Scholar Laura Lee of KAAL TV in Rochester, the evening was sponsored by Vance & Darin Opperman, Hubbard Broadcasting, Comcast, UnitedHealthcare, and the University of St. Thomas College of Arts and Sciences.
"What a great event! We are so grateful for everyone's support and enthusiasm," said ThreeSixty Executive Director Chad Caruthers.
The event welcomed more than 150 guests and offered remarks from University of St. Thomas President Dr. Julie Sullivan, Caruthers and Lee, who received the ThreeSixty Alumni Achievement Award. Star Tribune Editor Mark Holland was honored with the ThreeSixty Widening the Circle Award. Guests enjoyed a short video of each award winner, as well as one featuring 2015 ThreeSixty Scholar Amira Warren-Yearby.
The 2015 Great Minnesota Media Get-Together raised more than $50,000 for ThreeSixty. The 2016 edition will be the evening of Friday, October 28. Details for 2016, as well as the 2015 videos, can be found here.
