Joyful Words, Sounds Highlight LegalCORPS Celebration
Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development Commissioner Shawntera Hardy emphasized the importance of supporting business development among historically under-served populations and praised LegalCORPS’s role in that during the organization’s Annual Fundraiser & Volunteer Recognition Celebration Oct. 6.
In her keynote talk, Commissioner Hardy noted that LegalCORPS considers these populations assets rather than liabilities or problems to be solved — an outlook Minnesota’s DEED embraces as well.
LegalCORPS honored its volunteer of the year, Rakhi Nikhanj, at the event. She thanked the organization for providing her opportunities to serve low-income entrepreneurs and inventors who inspire her and other LegalCORPS volunteers.
A highlight of the evening was a rousing, joyous performance by the Grammy Award-winning vocal group Sounds of Blackness — which was sponsored by LegalCORPS Board of Directors members as a special thanks for LegalCORPS volunteers.
LegalCORPS is grateful for these sponsors who made the event possible:
