About the Benefit: Blue Engine is proud to celebrate seven extraordinary years as a high impact nonprofit dedicated to increasing student achievement in historically oppressed communities. The Annual Benefit is both a fundraiser and an opportunity to celebrate the power of young people who commit to service and partner with schools to transform the classroom into more engaging places to learn and achieve for 1600 students across New York.

Join us for a fun and inspiring evening featuring dinner and cocktails alongside 250 of our brightest thought partners, civic leaders, and philanthropists who also believe in the infinite potential of all humans. Funds from this event will fuel our work in New York City public school classrooms and enable Blue Engine to reimagine education to benefit students of all backgrounds.
