Our 28th Annual Ted J. Balestreri Leadership Classic was the most spectacular in the Foundation’s history, raising over $1.8M in critical funds to fuel our work and allow us to continue to attract, empower, and advance the future leaders of our industry. It was a sold-out event, with our most successful live auction dinner raising over $450,000. A special thanks to all of our attendees, and especially our incredible sponsors.
