RECAP: Mix It Up at Midtown Fundraiser Happy Hour

On behalf of Capital Partners for Education (CPE), I want to thank everyone that came to the fundraiser happy hour last night. I want to also thank those you made donations but weren’t able to attend. Thanks to you, we were able to raise over $5,000!!! All proceeds will go toward funding the CPE programs that directly benefit the CPE students.

CPE hosted the “Mix It Up” Fundraiser Happy Hour to not only raise money for the organization, but to bring awareness as well.  CPE has been around for 17 years providing private high school scholarships to DC youth, academic support and an amazing mentor program.

Guest began strolling in at 6:30pm and the last person didn’t leave until after 9pm.  There were well over 50 guests in attendance enjoying great drinks from the staff at Midtown Loft, food and of course participating in the raffle of more than 22 prizes! in Information cards were placed throughout the loft for guests and a PowerPoint was running that featured graduation pictures from this year’s class and recognized sponsors and raffle donators.  CPE staff, leadership committee members and mentors introduced themselves and talked to guest about CPE and how they too can become involved.

The raffle started around 8pm and prizes included yoga for a guest and ten friends, Nationals tickets, comedy show tickets, salon gift certificates and lots more!

I personally haven’t started mentoring with CPE, but I can tell you that it is a GREAT organization.  The staff, mentors and leadership committee are very passionate about helping young people in the area.  The students that become members of the CPE program are gifted, motivated students seeking the necessary resources to be successful. 

I look forward to being matched with a student this August. While I’ve never been a mentor(so the idea makes me a little nervous), I know that I’ll be helping someone reach their full potential, while under different circumstances they may not have had that opportunity.  If you’re interested in learning more about CPE, please visit I encourage everyone to take the time and volunteer with an organization that interest you, whether it’s CPE or not.
