Associa Branches Host 80s Prom Night Fundraiser To Benefit Associa Cares

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. — November 14, 2022 — Two Associa branches – Associa Minnesota and Cities Management – recently hosted an 80s Prom Night Gala to raise funds that benefit Associa’s affiliate charity, Associa Cares, which helps families and communities in need as a result of natural and man-made disasters. Twenty-six vendor partners and more than 75 Associa community managers, operations personnel, and branch leaders participated in the prom-themed mixer which featured dinner, a silent auction, and social networking. Plus, there was plenty of fun 80s music for moving and grooving! The event took place at the historic Machine Shop, a former mill and event venue located in Northeast Minneapolis’ trendy St. Anthony neighborhood.

Smith Jadin Johnson, PLLC – a legal practice serving the legal needs of businesses, contractors, homeowners’ associations, residential, and commercial property management companies throughout the Midwest – served as the gala’s main sponsor. The firm is a long-time partner of Associa and a dedicated supporter of Associa Cares and its ongoing mission to help individuals and families in need throughout the greater Minnesota region.

“This was such a fun event for all our team members and vendor partners,” said Associa Minnesota Branch President, JoAnn Borden CMCA®, AMS®, PCAM®. “It was made even more special by the fact that it was for a truly worthwhile cause.”

“The gala was a great way to recognize the contributions of our team members and loyalty of our vendor partners,” said Cities Management Branch President Kate Grutzmacher, AMS®. “At the same time, it served as a reminder that there are people in need and our continued support helps Associa Cares make a positive impact in so many different areas.”
