In 2020, it was best to not to have the nearly 1,500-person event. We appreciate everyone who supported JA and the financial literacy programs we provide to area students by taking part in our UN-Festival. Thank you to our sponsors for sticking with us and to everyone who participated in our big online auction, purchased a Pappy Van Winkel 23 Year raffle ticket, and purchased a JA Community Discount Card full of deals to local businesses. Your UN-Festival participation allowed us to provide as many children as the past year, more than 2,250, in this area with the JA lessons that give them the inspiration and tools to live their best life.
