CYC Back To School Night

You're invited to Back to School Night!

Once again Comedy Works has partnered with Colorado Youth for a Change (CYC) to put on an evening of fun and laughter in the spirit of giving. The 12th Annual Back to School Night celebrates CYC in their efforts to solve Colorado’s dropout crisis and raises critical funds to support children and youth in reaching their educational goals.

Back to School Night is CYC's biggest fundraiser of the year and the event features: • Cocktail hour with heavy appetizers and a silent auction • Presentation of the “You Count” Awards • Live auction and paddle raiser • Comedy show featuring John Tole • Cash bar for drinks other than wine • Business/Cocktail Attire

The honoree for the 2018 YOU COUNT! Award is Christine Benero, President & CEO of Mile High United Way, as well as an outstanding youth who has overcome barriers to graduate from high school.

Event sponsorships are available by contacting Julia Hughes at juliah@youthforachange.org.

Please join us for a great time and help make a difference in the lives of students and your community!

Background
More than 10,000 students drop out of Colorado schools every year. On average, a student who drops out is not eligible for 90% of available jobs and will cost taxpayers nearly $300,000 over their lifetime in lost tax revenue, crime, incarceration, and health related costs.

Since 2005, CYC has worked to reenroll youth who have dropped out of school and provide in-school programming to prevent youth from dropping out in the first place. We proudly serve 3,000 children and youth each year through early literacy support; high school intervention programs that target attendance and course failure; reenrollment services for those that have dropped out; and a GED plus concurrent enrollment program in partnership with Aurora Public Schools.
