Event description

Description

The Sistrunk Historical Organization, a cultural organization that celebrates the accomplishments of people of African descent, is proud to announce its 16th Annual Scholarship Gala and Fundraiser, which provides two years of financial support to two, college-bound students from Broward County public schools each year. The highly anticipated scholarship gala, a combination fundraiser dinner, entertainment, and dancing event, raises funds for the Sistrunk Scholarship program. The event also recognizes leaders of the community who make a positive difference. Every year, attendees have fun supporting students of Broward County and dress according to a fun-filled, theme-based event.

This year’s theme is a Night of Success: Endless Opportunities. Attendees are encouraged to look like “success” in their black tie/formal attire. Supporters should be ready to celebrate and dance with the jazzy sounds of Deep Fried Funk band while they salute the future of three college scholarship recipients.

This year’s gala will be held on Saturday, June 15th from 6p.m. to 10p.m. (COCKTAIL HOUR-OPEN BAR 6pm-7pm) at the Urban League of Broward County Empowerment Center, located at 560 NW 27th Ave, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33311. The gala’s $75 ticket price includes a buffet dinner and open bar, entertainment, and recognition program.

Honorees at this year’s gala are Ashley Eubanks, CEO/Founder (The Beauty Initiative, Inc., Coral Springs, FL), Marie “Ms. Peaches” Huntley, CEO/Founder (On-Call Leadership, Fort Lauderdale, FL), Reverend John Mohorn, Pastor (The Word of the Living God Ministries, Inc., Pompano Beach, FL), and Michelle Padura, Principal (Stranahan High School, Fort Lauderdale, FL).

Those unable to attend the gala may still contribute to the scholarship program by emailing sistrunk.festival@yahoo.com. Sponsorship opportunities for the scholarship gala and dinner are available at the following levels: $5,000, $3,500 and $1,000. Sponsorship and Commemorative Souvenir booklet ads can also be purchased by visiting sistrunkfestival.org.
