On March 10, our friends at All Hands Raised hosted their annual Roast — an event that we look forward to each year.

Board member Jennifer Messenger Heilbronner joined other MGers for a terrific evening that included a live auction and a headline performance by stand-up comic Alonzo Bodden.

MG was proud to sponsor their event, which commemorated 20 years dedicated to championing education, equity and excellence inside and outside of the classroom.

The event raised over $175,000 to continue All Hands Raised’s community-wide work on excellence and equity in education, from cradle to career. So many people from all sectors of Portland were in the room raising their hands for our kids, and we were honored to be among them on this special night.
