We are just a few weeks away from our 25th anniversary celebration on May 4! In recognition of our school’s quarter-century milestone, we’ve expanded our usual annual celebration to a new venue, and lengthened the party to include a special program and dance party to follow.
More about the event:
This year’s event will be held at The National Museum for American Jewish History’s one-of-a-kind ballroom, which has a terrace and incredible views of the Independence Mall and Philadelphia skyline — a perfect place to celebrate YouthBuild’s history in Philadelphia, and our school’s focus on the future of its young people.
Program & Entertainment
Cocktails and music start at 6 PM, and we will hold a brief program celebrating our history and sponsors and honoring former executive director Simran Sidhu at 8 PM. Our live DJ for this event is DJ G33k, who will keep the party going until 10 PM!
For the seventh consecutive year, JPM Catering created a custom menu for our event, featuring heavy hors d’ouevres and desserts.
Our open bar will feature wine, local beer, and a signature cocktail. VIP guests will also receive champagne in limited-edition flutes to toast YouthBuild’s legacy of life-changing education and job training!
No celebration would be complete without cake, and we’re grateful to Divine Cakes for donating a custom 25th anniversary cake!
Silent Auction & Donation Wall
In addition to celebrating our success and honoring our supporters, our goal for this event is to raise funds that will directly help future YouthBuild students as they get their lives back on track. To that end, our event will feature a silent auction and donation wall.
