Join Us For Dream Big 2015
Futures and Options is excitedly anticipating the Fifth Annual Dream Big—A Celebration of Opportunity – which will be held on Monday, October 26th at The Plaza Hotel Ballroom, from 7pm to 10pm.
The gala is Futures and Options’ cornerstone fundraising event of the year, which recognizes those leaders in the business community who make it possible for young people to acquire the work-readiness skills, career opportunities and higher education to achieve educational and professional success.
This year, Futures and Options is honored to present Robert S. “Steve” Miller, Turnaround Legend, current Chief Executive Officer of International Automotive Components Group, and former Chairman of AIG, with our 2015 Dream Big Award.
The 2015 recipients of our Barbara L. Christen College Scholarship and the IPG Mediabrands Scholarship will also be presented with their awards during the evening. The Barbara L. Christen College Scholarship is awarded to an exemplary Futures and Options high school senior. The IPG Mediabrands Scholarship is awarded to a Futures and Options high school senior who is interested in pursuing a career in media advertising; the recipient is also provided with an internship opportunity at IPGMediabrands’ New York office.
For Dream Big sponsorships and tickets, please visit Eventbrite. A special rate is available for Futures and Options alumni. Please email Susan Bruder for the promotion code for your discounted ticket.
