"Pep Rally Under the Stars" Gala
Thank you to the gala sponsors, attendees, donors, and volunteers who helped to make "Pep Rally Under the Stars" 2014 a success! The event raised $105,000 to fuel Generation Hope's work over the next year!
"Pep Rally Under the Stars" is the principal fundraising event for Generation Hope. In the spirit of celebrating collegiate excellence, it is held at the Samuel Riggs IV Alumni Center at the University of Maryland and is attended by 200 guests who include leading figures from the political, media, entertainment, education, and business worlds -- all joined together to celebrate education and our vital work and mission. Not just another gala, "Pep Rally Under the Stars" allows guests to wear their best attire along with college memorabilia from their alma mater or favorite school!
This year, we honored KAISER PERMANENTE as our 2014 MVP for their incredible support of the Scholar Program over the past three years.
Congratulations to our other honorees!
- Angeline Palmer, Scholar of the Year
