This event will be a fundraiser for The Woodson Fund. Proceeds raised during the event will be used to provide scholarships to African American students at Historically Black Colleges and Universities around the country. The theme for the evening is African Royalty and attendees are encouraged to come in attire that personally reflects this theme.
Many HBCU students do not make it to graduation, because they exhaust their financial resources. Our goal is to systematically work to address enrollment and persistence issues by addressing that impediment. The Woodson Fund is "Removing Barriers to Educational Access."
Donations will be accepted before and during the Gala. If you are unable to attend, donations may also be submitted via the website. Donors who do not express a desire to remain anonymous will be acknowledged.
The goal is $50,000!
