The 2018 Prep for Prep Lilac Ball honored Martin Lipton of Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz and John L. Vogelstein of Warburg Pincus. The two former Prep Board Chairs have collectively served more than 65 years as Trustees, and their contributions are essential to building Prep into one of New York City's best educational access and leadership development programs.

About the Lilac Ball

The Lilac Ball, Prep for Prep’s signature annual event, brings together more than 1,000 supporters, students, and alumni to celebrate the achievements of Prep’s graduating high school class. The event also pays tribute to an honoree who has demonstrated a strong commitment to education and leadership development. Prep is entirely privately funded with half its $12 million operating budget coming from its Trustees. All funds raised through the Lilac Ball go directly to Prep programming; event-related expenses are underwritten by the Board. The extraordinary generosity of our donors enables Prep to continue to foster our nation’s next generation of leaders.
