You are invited to “A Blast from the Past Homecoming Dance” this Saturday, Nov. 12, at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Pasadena. Funds generated at this event will support College Access Plan (CAP), a Pasadena nonprofit organization that provides free programs in college preparedness for students attending Pasadena’s public schools.
CAP has assisted thousands of students to identify colleges that match their interests, receive comprehensive college application assistance and understand college majors and career pathways. Students who participate in this program have received prestigious scholarships, including from Gates Millennium and Edison, and have attended schools like Stanford, Johns Hopkins, and Smith College in addition to every school in the University of California and California State University systems.
The event will be held from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. and will include dancing, drinks, and a light dinner fare. You can show up in full dancing gear from your favorite era (but you don’t have to).
Special guests will include Dr. Nancy Gonzalez and Dr. Ben Aroyan, both John Muir High School counselors, and Kim Kenne, President of the PUSD Board of Education. CAP Alumni from 10 graduation classes will also be present. This evening is of additional importance because it celebrates CAP’s 10th anniversary of serving the youngsters of our community.
Tickets into the event are $100 each or 10 for $900. Click here to purchase tickets online.
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Pasadena is located at 2020 N. Fair Oaks Avenue in Pasadena 91103.
