Since 1986, the Lilac Ball has served as Prep for Prep’s signature annual event 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. 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.
