ABOUT RAISE A CLASS

Raise a Class is Access Opportunity's signature annual fundraising event. Raise a Class offers a unique twist on the traditional gala. Guests enjoy food stations featuring culinary delights from some of Denver and Boulder's favorite restaurants; beer, wine, and custom cocktails; a fun and slightly irreverent auction; and live music. The highly-anticipated annual event is attended by over 500 guests. Raise a Class is a beloved gathering of the Access Opportunity community and a celebration of our students. The event promises to stand out from the crowd by offering a unique experience in support of Access Opportunity's mission of supporting high-achieving students from low-income households.
