Rise Up Luncheon 2024

Thank you to all who attended our Rise Up luncheon last month. What an incredible afternoon it was! We heard from students and staff about the growing needs that students are facing. They often lack the resources to cover basic needs like housing, child care, transportation, food and medical care.

The goal of Rise Up was to raise funds for CCC emergency grants to help students cover these basic needs so they can continue their educational path and achieve their dreams. Our community stepped up and our generous guests raised an incredible $109,000!
