This year’s theme “Exposing the Pipeline – School Zone to the Prison Zone” focuses on continuing to work together as an overall community to ensure our youth receive a quality education and that we provide the resources to intervene where necessary to keep our youth in the “school zone” versus the “prison zone”.

Individual tickets can be purchased for a donation of $45.00 each.  Tickets will not be available at the door.

For more information contact Dan Bosket, President and Banquet Chairperson, at 610-780-9903.
