EMERGE’s 6th Annual Build The Village Luncheon was a huge success! Nearly 500 guests came together to raise a record-breaking $612,000 in support of our students. This signature event was one to remember as we celebrated EMERGE’s impactful work, honored HISD Deputy Superintendent and EMERGE Founder, Dr. Rick Cruz and heard from a remarkable EMERGE student, Jonathan Bush (Victory Early College High School '23), who shared his story of hope and perseverance and announced that he will be attending Northeastern this fall. 
We are so grateful for our village who made this year’s luncheon one to remember. If you haven’t already, we invite you to check out the event photos as wells as the empowering video revealed at the luncheon. If you missed the event, you can watch the recorded livestream here. Enjoy! 
Please stay tuned for next year’s luncheon date.
