Near North's active community of families and friends celebrate and support the school through a variety of events throughout the year. The majority support NNM's financial well-being, while offering current and past families opportunities for socializing and giving back.

Big Night

Near North's annual fundraiser, supporting financial aid for Near North students. Silent and live auctions, dancing, art displays, and your best NNM friends—all to benefit financial aid for the school.

Big Night is the primary source of tuition assistance to NNM families and fulfills the school’s commitment to creating an economically diverse community. Over the past decade plus, Big Night has raised over $2 million toward NNM’s Financial Aid Program. For 2018-19, NNM granted over $775,000 of aid to 79 children from 52 families—approximately 14% of the total student population.

If you were unable to attend or simply want to re-live the magic of Big Night, watch the short video produced by John Dickson below.
