Prep for Prep’s 2021 Lilac Ball, our signature student graduation event and fundraiser, was a Virtual Celebration of Leadership. Parents, alumni, friends, neighbors, and more were able to digitally join the event from anywhere in the world.  

We celebrated the hard work, dedication, and resilience of the high school Class of 2020 and Class of 2021 and honored JPMorgan Chase & Co. for its longtime professional and programming support of Prep. Together, we recognized the many ways our students and alumni continue to lead and innovate in the fight for educational opportunity, racial equity, and social justice — launching leaders and inspiring change.

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.
