A Toast to Brighter Futures

Past scholarship winner Djassi Julien speaks at Toast

Thank you for joining us at the 2023 A Toast to Brighter Futures! With your support, we raised a record-breaking $61,500!

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 97% 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 $100,000 in scholarships.
