Given the continued progression of COVID-19 in New York City and across the nation, Prep for Prep is no longer able to host the Lilac Ball, originally scheduled for June 8, 2020 at the Sheraton New York. While we will not be able to physically celebrate the longtime service of Lilac Ball Honoree and Prep Board Chair Scott Bok and our high school seniors’ graduations and college matriculations, our need now is greater than ever.
The Lilac Ball was expected to raise over $4 million, representing more than 35% of our fundraising goal. Your continued support is needed to make programming possible for our students as they and their families face new challenges: adjusting to economic and emotional changes for those impacted by job and income losses, family illnesses, adapting to remote learning across public and independent schools, and navigating complex decisions about independent school and college acceptances without the benefits of on-campus visits. Our staff are rising to the challenges with increased outreach, adaptive programming, mental health support, and increased use of student emergency funds.
Please make a gift in honor of the Class of 2020 so we can continue our critical leadership development programs and support services for our students.
