Dreams to Action Breakfast 2015 - 100,000 Dreams and Growing!
Thank you to our 500+ guests for being a part of the hugely successful Project SUCCESS Dreams To Action breakfast! Generous gifts from attendees and one-to-one matches pledged by Lifetouch Inc. will help turn kids' dreams into reality!
We are excited to announce that the event raised $500,000!
Guests started their day with joy, inspiration, laughter and tears beginning with an energetic performance by middle and high school school students who created and starred in And So I Did.
The kick-off performance was followed by Generation Next Executive Director and former Minneapolis Mayor, R.T. Rybak, and stories of dreams becoming reality as told by Project SUCCESS Executive Director Adrienne Diercks, Project SUCCESS alumnus David Rollen and Project SUCCESS student Alejandro Eduarte.
“Being able to help people find hope in themselves is the greatest thing you can help anybody with. My dream is to open a therapeutic youth group home to help youth find their own identity to succeed.”David Rollen, Project SUCCESS alumnus

Guests also viewed the debut of our newest video, "100,000 Dreams," generously produced by Lifetouch Media Productions, featuring current Project SUCCESS students, parents and alumni (and including all the event's speakers). The video highlights the impact the organization has on the thousands of students served, through brief reflections on what it means to dream, plan and succeed:
