In January, Flaherty & Hood sponsored a table at the Rochester Community & Technical College’s Beat the Odds scholarship awards dinner. The Beat the Odds program provides $2,500 college scholarships to four area students who have overcome tremendous odds to become personally and academically successful.

Flaherty & Hood was also a sponsor for the Welcome Back Legislators Reception in January. During the annual event, legislators, staff and community members come together at the Ordway Center in St. Paul to celebrate the start of the new legislative session.

Lastly, Flaherty & Hood was pleased to be a sponsor for the 2011 Frozen River Film Festival in Winona. Each year, the festival showcases films that address issues as varied as the environment, sustainable communities, extreme sports, adventure travel and diverse cultures.
