On Thursday, November 10, 2016, the Keepers of The Promise will treat Pittsburghers to “A Night of a Million Possibilities,” an exclusive gala evening featuring internationally acclaimed jazz musician and composer Wynton Marsalis and his small group, at a concert celebrating the success of The Pittsburgh Promise and its scholars.
This one night only event is expected to raise $1 million for The Pittsburgh Promise Scholarship Fund which is working toward raising $68 million in order to sustain scholarships at least through the class of 2028. Thus far, The Pittsburgh Promise Scholarship Fund has achieved 73% of its $250 million fundraising goal, and has invested more than $74 million by sending 6,279 qualifying Pittsburgh Public Schools graduates to post-secondary education and a prosperous future.
