Jeff took advantage of the great fall weather by camping this weekend. No, not in the Boundary Waters, but in Downtown Minneapolis. Over $100,000 was raised for YouthLink to provide support services for homeless and at risk youth. Thank you to those of you who helped sponsor this great camp out.
Youthlink has been a partner of IAGs for several years. Working to help homeless and at-risk youth is a passion for our company. We have added another layer to our partnership with Youthlink this summer. David Buckman has been hired by Youthlink to provide construction project management of the remodel and expansion on their Minneapolis location. We are excited to help our friends and partners reach their commercial real estate goals.
We are so excited for our clients and friend Youthlink as they broke ground on their new downtown facility last week. This facility will be instrumental in providing services to homeless youth in Minneapolis. It has 46 residential units as well. This 17-million-dollar project is a great partnership between Youthlink, Project for Pride for Living (PPL), and local government. IAG Commercial congratulates Youthlink and PPL on this exciting project! Thank you for all you do for our community.
The snow on the ground this morning has us thinking about homeless and at risk youth. This is a cause near to our hearts which is why we partner with Youthlink. For this reason, every year our founder and president, Jeff LaFavre, camps out in Minneapolis to raise money for this cause. As a result of this fundraising, Youthlink is able to provide support services to vulnerable youth. Please partner with Jeff and IAG Commercial and contribute to this great cause.
Our company president, Jeff LaFavre, is putting words into action. As part of an ongoing relationship with youthlink, an organization that serves homeless youth, Jeff will be sleeping out to raise funds. The event is called Night of Hope. That is the goal of this event, to bring hope to the homeless youth of Minnesota. Youthlink provides resources to help homeless youth get education, eligible government assistance, support groups and more. Please partner with Jeff as he lives out the IAG mission of serving our community.
