New Door Ventures is excited to celebrate the achievements of program participants and the legacy of outgoing CEO Tess Reynolds at the first annual Glow Up Award! The evening kicks off with a reception of hearty appetizers, wine and beer, and a display of art made by New Door youth. The awards ceremony will honor alumni from New Door’s education and employment programs for their accomplishments, with the winners receiving scholarships towards academic and professional endeavors. Current and former program participants will perform and share powerful stories throughout the event, and members of New Door’s Alumni Leadership Council will emcee the ceremony.
