This year’s event will showcase stories of our students, their families, and our team as we have all navigated an unprecedented year. Cappy Hour also has a new home this year at the Grand Sierra Resort and Casino and we cannot wait to gather together safely. We hope that you will join us on April 29th at 5 p.m.!

Cappy Hour, our fun and heartwarming event, whose name was inspired by graduation caps our students will one day receive, is the largest fundraiser of the year for Communities In Schools of Western Nevada. This event supports more than 7,000 Washoe County School District’s most underserved students across 12 schools, many of whom are critically affected by poverty, hunger, and mental-health or social-emotional issues only exacerbated by COVID-19.

Individual tickets are $95 per person, and sponsorship level tickets start at $500. CLICK HERE to purchase tickets or sponsorship packages today!
