Want to do something nice this year for kids in #Nhv?
The 19th annual LEAP Year Event is an evening of terrific food, stimulating conversations, and rich 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 host intimate dinner parties in their elegant homes and other select venues. 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 27, 2014. The evening will begin with a cocktail reception and book signing at Hopkins School at 5 p.m.  At 7 p.m.., guests will depart for the individual dinners held at the homes of LEAP supporters.

LEAP Year Event is LEAP’s most successful fundraiser. A full 97% of the event’s proceeds -- ticket sales, sponsorship and donations -- go towards the support of LEAP programming. With your help, LEAP children and youth become learners, leaders and mentors.
