City, county and state officials all gathered in Lord of Life Lutheran Church’s gym on Friday, May 12, for the annual Mayors’ Prayer Breakfast. The event was held as a fundraiser for local social service non-profit Youth First and featured WCCO sports director and longtime radio personality Mike Max as keynote speaker.

“I love that you gather out here and as you look around in this gym and you think about Youth First, I hope you understand that we are the lucky ones,” Max told the crowd. “We are the ones that are trying to provide opportunities, the same kind that we got, for those that don’t get them on a regular basis. I say that because I don’t think we appreciate the things we do have.”
