Celebrate our graduating Scholars and all the ways our students, their families, and our community come together to Make It Happen!
After two years of virtual celebrations, we are delighted to host POMP! 2022 in-person on Saturday, May 7, at Double Clutch Brewing Company in Evanston.
The event will follow the latest federal and state protocols to ensure safety. In fact, we chose Double Clutch Brewing Company, a new restaurant in the heart of Evanston, for its expansive, high-ceilinged spaces and two large garage-style doors that can be opened for extra ventilation.
Join the celebration to hear how our graduates found ways to thrive during the pandemic and learn about their plans for life after graduation. The event will showcase the ways your support makes a direct impact in the lives of Evanston students and their families.
Come dine, drink, and laugh with us as we toast the Class of 2022!
Proceeds from POMP! provide programming and support services to empower Evanston students who are first-generation college, students of color, and students from families with limited financial means to access and graduate from college and obtain strong jobs.
Thank you to our POMP! Sponsors
