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 11th Annual Back to School Night celebrates CYC in their efforts to solve Colorado’s dropout crisis and raises critical funds to support their youth and programs.

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 Monty Franklin
• Cash bar for drinks other than wine
• Business/Cocktail Attire

Honorees for the 2017 YOU COUNT! Award are Brooke Brown, Executive Director at The Carson Foundation, Aviva Katz, Transition Manager at Denver Public Schools, and an outstanding CYC youth. The YOU COUNT! Award is presented to leaders in education and supporters of the CYC mission.

Event sponsorships are available by contacting Robert Ham at roberth@youthforachange.org

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

The dropout problem in Colorado is serious and our community pays a hefty price. Currently, there are more than 10,000 dropouts in our state. The average high school dropout 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.

Colorado Youth for a Change is solving Colorado’s dropout crisis. Since 2005, CYC has substantially contributed to decreasing the number of dropouts in Colorado. And of the nearly 2,000 students we serve annually, 75% continue enrollment or graduate.
