CIS of Miami’s largest fundraiser is their annual gala, and this year’s event slated for Saturday, April 26th will be a black-tie affair to remember, commemorating CIS of Miami’s silver anniversary and 25 years of service in Miami-Dade. The theme of the gala is “an evening among the stars”, which pays tribute to the CIS of Miami students (stars) who have successfully graduated high school since the organization’s inception. Features live music, student performances, dinner, and silent auction.

Full: Every nine seconds of each school day, a young person drops out of high school in the U.S., and nearly one-third fail to graduate on time. For the past 25 years, Communities In Schools of Miami (CIS of Miami) has been a driving force in collaborating with Miami-Dade County Public Schools to improve educational outcomes by providing free programs and tools to keep students in class and on track toward graduation.

The event takes place in a ballroom at the Epic Hotel overlooking downtown Miami’s skyline and Biscayne Bay. The evening starts with a sunset cocktail hour at 6:30 p.m. where guests can bid on luxury, silent auction items including all-inclusive vacation packages; bowling and lunch for 10 with Al Golden, University of Miami’s head football coach; jewelry; dinners; spa treatments and more. Guests will enjoy a three-course dinner followed by live music and entertainment by CIS of Miami “stars”.
