Event Details

On August 22, 2020 – the Laurel Board of Trade, in collaboration with the City of Laurel, will host its 8th Annual Back 2 School, End of Summer Family Night Out for students and families residing in Laurel. The Back 2 School Jam is a family-friendly entertainment event to celebrate the end of summer and mark the beginning of a new school year. The event also marks the end of our annual fundraising campaign where individuals and businesses can donate to purchase school supplies for local children and local teachers in need.


This year, the event will feature live entertainment, educational information and resources for parents and students, along with a free movie in the park provided by the City of Laurel.  This event will be held at the Granville Gude Park on Mulberry Street in Laurel from 4:00 PM until 10:00 PM. To date, we have served thousands of students and each year the number continues to grow!

Please consider a donation to help support this event and our local schools. With your generous support, we hope to once again reach our goal of $20,000 to continue this family event and to help prepare students and families in our community for educational success! Together we have the power to empower!

Please complete the sponsorship commitment form listing your level of support. To complete your sponsorship payment, please mail or deliver your completed sponsorship form to the Laurel Board of Trade or call the office. If you are not able to give a cash donation, please consider a gift certificate to your business establishment that we can raffle to the local families in attendance. We ask that all donations are turned in to the Laurel Board of Trade no later than August 1, 2020, but an earlier commitment allows us to purchase more supplies for the kids and teachers.

Thank you for your support in helping Laurel students, families and teachers get a head start for the next school year.  If you require additional information about this event, please contact (301) 483-0838 or
