Congrats and Thank You!

We are honored and grateful to Tosha Tabron, vice president of global philanthropy at J.P. Morgan Chase, who is a 2016 Crain's "40 Under 40" honoree.

Crain's Detroit Business has challenged this years' honorees to raise funds for a cause of their choice. Tosha has very generously selected Teen HYPE to be the beneficiary of funds raised through this effort.

"Given all the violence predicated on inequities and racial tensions that exist in our nation right now, it brings me comfort that there are safe places where young people become self-assured, celebrate culturally differences and build meaningful relationships that lead to real understanding," Tosha says.

Congratulations, Tosha and thank you immensely for your support and love of Teen HYPE! The feeling is very mutual.

This year marks the 25th anniversary of Crain's "40 Under 40." Celebrate with Tosha and all of the honorees on Wednesday, October 26, 2016 at 5:30 p.m. at Roostertail.
