On Tuesday, October 17, PENCIL celebrated its biggest event of the year with our 2017 Gala. The evening inspired all of us and thanks to our supporters, we’re able to continue bringing together business professionals, educators, and students to open eyes, open minds, and open doors across New York City.

Because of you, thousands of New York City’s public school students will be able to begin writing their own PENCIL stories and forging their paths to success.
