Engage with civic engagement at our Benefit!

Thanks to everyone who came to our Annual Benefit on September 27th and helped to make it such a success! A big thanks also to all our sponsors who made the event possible.

Over 300 community advocates, artists, designers, and other urban enthusiasts came together to celebrate CUP. Attendees enjoyed delicious food and drink all while catching up on CUP’s new projects and making new friends!

Check out all the photos from the night here!

Thanks again for supporting CUP!

All proceeds go to the Center for Urban Pedagogy, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that uses design and art to increase meaningful civic engagement.
