The annual gala is our biggest event and always attracts a diverse crowd. From politicians to community advocates and police officers to members of foreign dignitaries, you never know who you may see or connect with. One thing is for sure though – it will be an inspiring night. The fundraising gala at its core seeks to raise awareness about the Foundation, update attendees on the progress of the school, and raise money to cover the $73,000 operating cost of the school.
Famously, our gala is known for its food! A local group of women, lovingly referred to as the “Somali Mothers,” cook up a storm and dish out some of the most popular and delicious Somali inspired food. Aside from the food, the gala is full of surprises. Last year our live auction, with Dave Smith as the auctioneer, included a top of the line mountain bike and airline tickets. Additionally, we had a silent auction that was bursting with African art, restaurant vouchers, and gift baskets. For this year, you can expect all of this and more!
