The Breakthrough Gala

2021 Breakthrough Gala

BREAKTHROUGH (VIRTUAL!) GALA 

April 29, 2020 at 7:00 PM

Over this past year, our students and teachers have experienced health and economic uncertainties, systemic racism and societal unrest, and a completely new way of learning and teaching. We are constantly reminded of just how resilient they are.

Please join us at this year’s Breakthrough Gala as we reflect on and share stories of resilience. Together we will celebrate our students and young teachers for their success despite all odds.

MYSTERY BOXES! 

Missing in-person events? Celebrate The Breakthrough Gala at home with a Breakthrough signature Mystery Box.
Get dinner, dessert, or a drink to enjoy during the event (or sometime soon) and help support some of our favorite local spots! Each year at The Breakthrough Gala, we partner with incredible local chefs and establishments. We are grateful for their unwavering support over the years. This year, we want to return that support and show up for them in a time of significant need for their industry.
