Thank You Breakthrough Supporters!

A heartfelt thank you to the many members of the community who supported our Raise Your Hand gala on February 13, 2018. Together, we raised over $250,000 in support of Breakthrough's work with future college students and aspiring teachers.

Our keynote speaker, Jim Shelton, urged us to find the will to invest in educational opportunity. Queenie and Cheese, our student speakers, shared their journeys over the past eight years, culminating in their college attendance this coming fall. We also presented awards to two leaders who launched this program in the early '90s: Al Gonzales, our program's founding director, and Sally Rosenblatt, a member of the initial Steering Committee.
