Top Executive Leadership Week & Buisiness Award
Greater Mankato Area United Way’s sixth annual Top Executive Leadership event will took place online July 13-17 to recognize the contributions of area businesses.
Sponsored by United Prairie Bank, the Top Executive Leadership Week & Campaign Business Awards will be held throughout the week on Greater Mankato Area United Way’s Facebook page. (The event has historically been a lunch in June.)
Greater Mankato Area United Way CEO Barb Kaus and 2021 Campaign Chair Jessica Blais of Alpha Media will go live on Facebook Monday through Friday at 10 am and 1 pm with company leaders to present the 2020 Campaign Business Awards.
Corporate and employee gifts play a large part in Greater Mankato Area United Way’s annual campaign that serves more than 50,000 people in Blue Earth, Le Sueur, Nicollet and Waseca counties. The region came together to help United Way hit its 2020 campaign goal of $2,060,000, which supports 55 nonprofit programs in the four-county area.
