NEW CANAAN, Conn. -- The Horizons Student Enrichment Program at New Canaan Country School will host its biennial benefit starting at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 28 at the Greenwich Hyatt.

The event is titled "Spotlight on Success" and will feature first-hand success stories of generations of Horizons students and graduates. New Canaan Country School alumnus Ryan Oakes, ’93 “Conjurer to the Stars,” will emcee the event. Oakes is a world-renowned illusionist, magician and mentalist and has been called the “hottest magician working today” by Forbes. The Dartmouth Rockapellas will provide additional entertainment.

Horizons at NCCS is an outreach program that benefits low-income, public school children primarily from Stamford and Norwalk. Since its origination at NCCS more than 50 years ago, Horizons has been replicated into a network of 40 affiliate programs across the country.

Horizons builds brighter futures for K-12 students from low-income families by creating year-round academic, cultural, and athletic opportunities, nurturing potential, cultivating a safe and supportive community and inspiring individual dreams.
