A celebration benefiting Breakthrough Miami raises $100,000
Breakthrough Miami - a tuition-free educational program on Saturdays and in the summer, for high-potential motivated students from under-resourced backgrounds – held its first “Support-A-Scholar Celebration” at the de la Cruz Collection in the Miami Design District. In attendance were nearly 400 people, including parents from Breakthrough Miami’s site school partners: Ransom Everglades School, Palmer Trinity School, Miami Country Day School and Carrollton School for the Sacred Heart.
Artist Jim Drain, joined by his girlfriend, artist Naomi Fisher, painted silk scarves and engaged the Breakthrough students in a “Linked Heroes” project. Their artwork – as well as self-portraits by the Breakthrough Miami students - decorated the space.
