Editor's Note: Apologies for this long-overdue post recapping our September 23rd event! We had some problems getting photographs uploaded from this event and wanted to make sure we adequately highlighted our glamorous and generous Boston guests. Our San Francisco recap is coming soon.
The Generation Project's summer/fall launch tour--sponsored and hosted by Rugby Ralph Lauren--resumed on September 23rd with a stop at the Rugby store in Boston. A young, enthusiastic and fashionable crowd enjoyed an open bar, hor d'ouvres, raffled shopping sprees from Ralph Lauren and--of course--the opportunity to design personally meaningful opportunities for students growing up in low-income areas. Donors designed a wide array of creative gifts based around their personal passions, including:
- -$25 for a rotating globe (Editor's note: Out of the 200+ gifts we've had pledged, this is the first globe--and I can't believe nobody had given one yet! This is possibly the cheapest way of getting a kid into geography... I can remember being wildly entertained for hours on end simply by sitting beside a globe and spinning it).
- -$30+ (and a promise of business tutorials) to fund a young artist and help them sell their paintings. The money will be repaid and reinvested in other young artists.
- -$50 for a class bake sale
- -$2000+ for a recurring essay contest with cash prizes that will motivate students to improve their writing.
We hope you can join us at our launch event in Boston tomorrow night!
