About LEAP Year Event
The 23rd annual LEAP Year Event is an evening of terrific food, stimulating conversations, and rich learning and culture. Its purpose is to raise money to support LEAP’s nationally recognized after-school and summer mentoring programs for children and youth living in New Haven’s high poverty neighborhoods. Generous LEAP supporters in the Greater New Haven area open their doors to host intimate dinner parties in their lovely homes. A notable Guest of Honor joins each dinner party, providing a special theme for each gathering.
This year’s event will take place on Thursday, February 22, 2018. The evening will begin with a cocktail reception, book signing, and an opportunity to hear from LEAP staff and counselors beginning at 5 pm at the Hopkins School in New Haven. At 7 pm, guests will depart for the individual dinners.
LEAP Year Event is LEAP’s most successful fundraiser with over 400 philanthropic donors, business professionals, and community leaders from the Greater New Haven area attending. With your partnership, we will continue to Create a New Haven for Our Children.
