An Evening of Celebration and Inspiration

Please join us for a festival of fun on wheels! Enjoy a roving outdoor dinner party at the ultimate tailgate fueled by gourmet food trucks, craft cocktails, vintage cars and rocking live music. The excitement will shift into high gear inside with dessert and a show featuring inspiring students and a live auction, plus lots of fun and games with surprise celebrity guests.

The creators of beloved films like Toy Story, Up! and Finding Nemo will treat us to behind-the-scenes tours and a special pre-release screening of their newest film, Cars 3 in their state-of-the-art digital theaters. You’ll be one of the first to see your favorite Cars characters return for a touching story about the power of mentorship – a spirit that drives College Track every day.

Spoiler Alert: It’s going to be a gas!

Attire: Festive and relaxed. Prepare for evening breezes and dancing on the lawn.

College Track believes that while talent is equally distributed, opportunity is not.

There are few things more extraordinary than seeing an individual achieve their full potential. Yet, today, only 21% of low-income students who enroll in college will graduate. Our 10-year program empowers students to overcome the academic, emotional, and financial barriers throughout high school and college until they graduate. As we celebrate our 20th anniversary, we are proud that our students graduate at a rate that is more than double the national average for low-income students. College Track alumni leave their campuses not only as college graduates, but as agents of change who will transform their families and their communities.
