A Toast to Brighter Futures

Emely Mojica, scholarship recipient speaker at Toast

Each spring, our community gathers for A Toast to Brighter Futures in celebration of our students and alumni. The event also raises funds for our Dream Big scholarships and career development programs.

More than 98% of our students go to college, and the Dream Big scholarships help our students fulfill their college dreams. Since 2012, Futures and Options has distributed more than $125,000 in scholarships.

Visit the Toast website for more details about this year’s event!
