Cash for College hosts Family Night - October 28

College graduates earn an average of $1 million more over their lifetimes than those with just a high school diploma, but a college education is expensive. To help you plan and prepare for college, Cash For College is hosting a Family Night from 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Wednesday, October 28, at the Los Angeles Convention Center, South Hall (1201 S. Figueroa Street).

Admission is FREE for everyone, and families with students in middle and high school are especially encouraged to attend. The convention will focus on topics such as how to pay for college, creating a college-going environment in your home, and college access regardless of immigration status.
