Jeremiah Program Minneapolis-St. Paul was the beneficiary of Raise the Barr Foundation’s first annual holiday party on December 12. The event was the brainchild of Vikings Pro Bowl linebacker Anthony Barr and his amazing mother, Lori Barr.

“We’ve had a lot of proud moments in our family over the last four or five years, and course raising a child you have all of those proud moments,” Lori said. “But tonight is really one of those that I’m most proud of … it’s a moment that exceeds all others.”

Jeremiah resident Alexis Stensland received a generous scholarship from the foundation.
