This year marks a milestone! As we celebrate 20 years of empowering children and youth, we have an exciting evening planned that you will not want to miss!
The evening kicks off at 6:30 PM with a virtual cocktail party. Pour yourself a drink, mingle online with all of your Children Rising friends, and enjoy a musical performance by Nzuri Soul.
Treat yourself to a scrumptious, gourmet meal delivered to your door by The Table Catering. View menu and delivery area here.
Next, you will be inspired by the wonderful children and youth who are overcoming the many challenges they face due to poverty, violence, racial injustice, and educational inequity. Celebrate their successes, and the loving support they receive from caring tutors and mentors.
We will be hosting an online LIVE auction. Come ready to bid on exciting items, including vacation packages in Costa Rica and Pebble Beach.
As a very special guest, we welcome Oscar, Grammy, Tony, and Emmy Award-winning actress Rita Moreno. Best known for her performance in West Side Story, Ms. Moreno shares her experience and passion for childhood education, punctuated by her time performing on the Electric Company and the Muppet Show.
