Once again, our amazing Movie Night co-chairs, Sahara Pynes and Tammy Ratner and their equally amazing team outdid themselves. They transformed our host, Cheri Morgan’s beautiful back yard into an outrageously authentic County Fair inspired by our movie classic CHARLOTTE’s WEB. Bales of hay, real and stuffed pigs, a 6 foot candy ferris wheel and down-home food overflowed at the party for the 300 plus attendees. Thank you to our corporate and individual sponsors for making the evening a smashing success with their very generous contributions. For the third year in a row attendance and fundraising records were shattered!
Many of our Determined to Succeed students attended the event and had just as much fun as some of the 5 and 6 year olds! Family Movie Night incorporates many of the ideals that Determined to Succeed cares about- family, friends, fun and above all a commitment to providing our very deserving, motivated students with the academic and enrichment services they need to be successful in middle and high school and go to college.

Our Admissions Panel Lecture series continues to grow exponentially in prestige, scope and attendance. Last year, Stacy Marks, the visionary behind this series, added a new admissions lecture panel for private Middle Schools in addition to the pre-school and K-6 Admissions lectures.
Determined to Succeed benefits from this series of lectures in very significant, tangible ways:
The events have also given many of our students the opportunity to speak in public for the first time as they share with the audience how Determined to Succeed has changed their lives. The impact of our students connecting with the audience at these panels has spawned countless Determined to Succeed volunteers and donors.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts to Hank Azaria and Katie Wright and our partners at the Geffen Playhouse for making this such an outstanding event.
