Thank You for Joining Us



2018 Annual Event

On April 19, we raised our voices at our annual celebration of girls and endless possibilities. Our emcee, KARE 11 journalist Adrienne Broaddus, moderated a panel of alumnae, featuring Kailee LMP ’07 and Crystalyn LMP ’07. These accomplished young women shared their ABF stories and what they are doing now: Kailee is a financial advisor and Crystalyn is a hockey standout who will play for the Gophers next season.

Through their generosity, our guests and donors told the ABF board, alumnae, volunteers and staff, “Girls matter, girls are important and girls need us,” and helped raise $300,000 for programs and grants for Minnesota girls. All of us at the Ann Bancroft Foundation say “Thank you”: Thank you for your support and your belief in our mission.
