It was a night to celebrate family, learning and brighter futures at the Machine Shop in Minneapolis.

The Circle of Impact event, which featured appetizers and live music from trumpeter Charles Lazarus, gospel quintet the Steeles and keyboardist Tommy Barbarella, was sponsored by Edina-based CircleRock, an online retailer of men’s clothing, leather goods and gifts, to benefit College Possible.

The nonprofit is dedicated to making college accessible to low-income students through training, coaching and support.
