Join us for Big Night 2021, Near North's annual fundraiser supporting scholarship for our deserving Near North students. Starting on Monday, March 1st join fellow Near North Community members as we kick off a week of virtual experiences followed by Virtual Big Night 2021 on the evening of Friday, March 5th.
While historically, Big Night has been the primary source of tuition assistance, dollars granted have outpaced our fundraising efforts. This is why your support is critical now more than ever. Last year's event raised over $400,000. During the 2020-21 school year over $1.1 million was granted in assistance, increasing last year's scholarships by a third. This is due to the enormous financial impact many of our families have felt because of COVID.
There's no doubt that this year will look a bit different but what remains unchanged is our commitment to raising funds crucial to supporting scholarship at Near North. We can only do this with the support and dedication of our entire community. Thank you for the many ways you support our community!
