The evening’s purpose is one of celebration, but, it also serves as HOBY’s greatest fundraiser. Without it, our programs would not reach the 10,000 students it does annually; our young people wouldn’t learn the impact they have on our world and our communities wouldn’t benefit from the amazing service our alumni do when they learn that they CAN.
