A Cause for Celebration

We are excited to announce A Cause for Celebration, an end of the year fundraiser and staff holiday party event, on Wednesday, December 6th at 155 W. Washington Blvd., 12th Floor, Los Angeles, CA 90015 from 5:00 – 9:00pm. Guests are invited to come at any time, but food will be served at 7:00pm. The event is free for all staff and guests, but there is a $30 cost for those who are interested in participating in the Paint & Sip fundraiser. Below is a schedule for the evening’s festivities.


Paint & Sip Fundraiser: 5:00 – 6:00pm

The evening will begin with a fundraiser for our Education Is Forever Scholarship Fund, open to any staff, partners, and friends of the school who wish to take part. YouthBuild Charter School of California alumnus and current Education is Forever Scholarship Recipient, Kenny Altamirano, will be hosting a Paint & Sip fundraiser, where participants will be guided through the process of creating their own 16”x20” spray painted canvas using a variety of stencils and techniques. There will be plenty of wine to sip on while you work! (And we’ll have aprons and gloves to keep you from getting your nice clothes messy.) The cost to participate in the Paint & Sip fundraiser is $30 per person. There are only 40 available slots, so be sure to RSVP here if you’re interested.

Fundraising Festivities: 5:00 – 6:00pm

If you are interested in coming prior to the dinner, but do not wish to participate in the Paint & Sip Fundraiser, we be also be hosting a cocktail hour with drinks and appetizers. We will have games and activities, along with opportunities to get to meet with the Education Is Forever team and learn more about the scholarship fund. 

Guest Speakers: 6:00 – 7:00pm

Following the Paint & Sip Fundraiser and Fundraising Festivities, we will be hosting several guest speakers, including recipients of our Education Is Forever Scholarship and representatives from The Audubon Center and Charles Drew University. Staff, partners, and friends of the school are all encouraged to attend.

Staff Holiday Party: 7:00 – 9:00pm

The evening will conclude with our Annual Staff Holiday Party. This is an opportunity for us all to kick back and let loose after a long year. All staff are invited to bring a plus one at no cost, but you must RSVP at the link below so we can get an accurate count for food, drinks, and parking validations.
