Project Graduation is a massive undertaking, requiring year-round planning, more than 200 volunteers and many hundreds of hours of volunteer work before the party even begins. It is also expensive to feed and entertain the approximately 1,000 students that we are expecting.

Your donations help rent the facility, provide the scholarships, entertainment, food and prizes, all that's needed to assure a safe, fun and memorable evening for all.
