What: YES Prep Public School‘s “Leading Houston Forward” celebration in Aspen
Where: Hooch Craft Cocktail Bar in Meat & Cheese Restaurant and Farm Shop
PC Moment: Houston’s summer expats chilling in the Rockies came in from the hiking trails and the biking routes to graze through a tasty field of charcuterie while learning more about the revolutionary charter school providing exemplary education for students in the city’s most underserved communities.
YES Prep CEO Mark DiBella and campaign chair Joe Greenberg led the discussion on Houston’s need for high-quality education for all students and how YES Prep is leading the charge with the launch of “Leading Houston Forward,” an $80 million philanthropic initiative to build YES Prep’s elementary schools and add 10,000 openings in order to serve 23,000 students by 2024. Currently, YES Prep schools are available for grades six through 12.
The gathering was hosted by Janet Clark, Barbara and Michael Gamson, and Claire and Joe Greenberg.
