2017 Annual Benefit Host Committee

The Blue Engine Annual Benefit is our signature fundraising event that will celebrate our organization’s supporters who make our work in classrooms possible and illuminate how education can be reimagined to benefit students of all backgrounds.

With the help of our host committee, the event will serve as an opportunity to connect inspired individuals who believe in the power of innovation in education to Blue Engine’s mission. Committee members will make a three-month commitment (March 2017 to May 2017), working in close partnership with Blue Engine’s Board of Directors and staff to set direction and ensure the success of this event for the first year and many to come.
