While, our 2020 Derby Time party was canceled,

our spirit and purpose carried on!

The Alletta Morris McBean Charitable Trust has stepped forward with the remarkable offer to match each gift received up to $90,000 so that our students are not negatively impacted by the event cancellation. Thanks to our generous event sponsors, ticket holders and donors, we have hit our goal and will be awarded the full matching gift of $90,000!

We are grateful for every gift received and to the McBean Trust for their incredible support during these challenging times.

Our goal is to help more children. like Duwuan in the video below, reach their potential through education and empower them to envision a brighter future.
