Prep for Prep is thrilled to celebrate the High School Classes of 2020 and 2021! We will host a virtual event this June to honor the accomplishments of last year's seniors and send off the new graduating class as they embark on the next part of their journeys.  We will also honor JPMorgan Chase & Co. for its longtime professional and programming support of Prep. Join our celebration to cheer on and congratulate Prep for Prep students from neighborhoods across New York City! Registration details to follow. 

Now, parents, alumni, friends, neighbors, and more can all digitally join the event from anywhere in the world. We hope alumni will not only view the celebrations with us, but also consider making a gift to honor the students and support future programs.

ABOUT THE LILAC BALL

Since 1978, 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. Prep is privately funded with half its $13 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.
