Beyond the Boroughs Junior Board is hosting the “Raise Up the Boroughs” fundraiser on Monday, September 21 from 7pm-11pm at Verboten in Brooklyn, NY. We hope that you are able to join us in supporting the charity. Click HERE to purchase tickets.

Beyond the Boroughs (BTB) national scholarship fund has launched a campaign, “Raise Up The Boroughs,” to help fund scholarships for first generation collegians, filling the frequently-overlooked void of “last dollars in”—often the difference between successful college enrollment and a crucial, missed opportunity for growth. BTB was founded by NFL Veteran Tutan Reyes in 2007 in order to make higher education a reality for students unable to afford the high cost of college tuition today. To date, BTB has raised over $300,000 and sponsored scholarships for over 60 students that have been accepted to college but lack the financial means to afford it.

The “Raise Up The Boroughs” campaign launched in early August, in an effort to raise $100,000 in scholarship funds by Nov. 3rd. Individuals wishing to contribute to the campaign can do so online by clicking HERE.

Thank you to our supporters who joined us for a wonderful evening to raise funds to send deserving students to college!

Former NFL Offensive lineman Tutan Reyes kept the tradition of scholarship and athletics on a night celebrating achievements in both

New York, NY (May 1, 2015) — National scholarship fund Beyond The Boroughs continued in their mission of rewarding academic achievers in need of financial assistance while celebrating one of the NFL’s biggest nights through their annual “NFL Draft Viewing Fundraiser” in New York City on Thursday. Despite the draft being held in Chicago this year, veteran NFL offensive lineman Tutan Reyes decided to keep the non-profit’s signature event in the Big Apple, hosting fellow NFL Veteran Gary Brown and media attendees including The New York Times, Guest of a Guest, and Thrillist. Guests mingled all while viewing the 2015 Draft at the DL. Beyond the Boroughs scholars, Cathy Williams of Rutgers University Dental School and Christian Hernandez of City College spoke about their experiences with the organization. With charitable sponsorship and donations from nationwide businesses including Crunch Gym, Equinox, Legend Securities, JMJ Financial, The DL, Grandstand Sports, Death’s Door Vodka, Don Q Cristal Rum and TY KU Citrus Liqueur,the affair generated exceptional buzz surrounding it’s charitable efforts in its seventh year.

“This event is special, and I’m just proud that we can do this again for the 7th year,” says Reyes. “It’s celebrating the future on both ends of academics and athleticism. Being able to award students the opportunity to attend college with the money we raised while also celebrating the achievements of the drafted players is special. It’s a time of celebration, and I can’t help but thank everyone involved for making the dreams of these future college students a reality. We’re seven years strong, and we’ll keep this tradition going for the sake of all college students in need.”

Beyond the Boroughs was created in 2007 and offers general scholarships for up to $5,000 per year over four years for a total of $20,000. The charity also provides named scholarships under personal, family or business titles that can help pay for a student’s semester. Fresh off the heels of their recent fundraising event with tennis star Serena Williams, Beyond The Boroughs charity is continuing their fundraising efforts to award the 2015 applicants that applied between January 15 and March 15. Scholarship winners are from all over the country and in many cases, represented first generation college students in their families for inner city communities.

“I’m already looking forward to next year’s draft” says Reyes. “And looking forward to awarding next year’s recipients at this event.”
