Mark your calendars and join us as we celebrate the accomplishments of CBO and its Scholars at the 2017 Down & Derby Gala. This annual event features delicious food and drinks provided by local restaurants and distilleries, an incredible live auction, exceptional mystery prizes, and dancing under the Derby lights to the music of Soda. We hope to raise $250,000 at the gala to support CBO’s mission to help students fulfill their college dreams. Your support can make a significant difference in the lives of our Scholars and their families.
