Virtual Event: Think Together, Raise A Hand 2021 – Come Together For Students Annual Fundraiser

Think Together, California’s largest nonprofit provider of after  school, expanded learning, and school improvement programs, will host its annual Raise a Hand fundraiser event virtually with a live broadcast at 7 p.m. April 23. Think Together’s annual fundraiser has been reimagined this year as a virtual experience with nearly 300 registered to attend. The event raises funds to support student learning recovery programs amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

When classrooms closed their doors last spring, Think Together partnered with schools to provide virtual expanded learning programs to 150,000 youth including students experiencing homelessness, in foster care and children of essential workers across California. Broadcom Inc., through the Broadcom foundation, worked with Think Together to provide an estimated 600 laptops to staff and students to support the transition to distance learning.

This year Think Together will honor Broadcom with its “Champion of Change” award which recognizes an outstanding partner dedicated to changing the odds for kids. Broadcom has been an invaluable partner, providing transformational support of student programs in the areas of technology and innovation. Since the start of its collaboration in 2018, Think Together and Broadcom have distributed nearly 2,000 laptop devices to students across the state.

Think Together will also award its Faces of the Future Scholarship Award, presented by PacLife, to three outstanding high school seniors enrolled in Think Together’s program. Recipients will be given a $3,000 scholarship and a laptop to start their college career.

Think Together’s annual Raise a Hand event is free to attend virtually, with watch party packages including Think Together branded wine glasses, face masks and copies of the Think Together magazine starting at $100.

Guests can also participate in Think Together’s Raise a Hand silent action online through April 23 with auction packages ranging from a four-night retreat to La Villa Bella in Punta Mita, Mexico to a luxury wine selection including Ridge Monte Bello, Occidental, Kistler and Kosta Browne.
