Imani Gala - Roaring 20's "High School Dance"
This year, our event theme is the Roaring 20’s, brought to life as a “High School Dance”. We must raise enough revenue to continue providing financial aid to the at-risk, inner-city children we serve. More than 97% of our families live at or below the poverty line.
This event is Imani's largest fundraiser, generating approximately $400,000 in a single evening with over 350 guests in attendance.
Imani's unique educational model holistically develops students by weaving together three cords that are not easily broken -- quality academic instruction, intentional emotional supports, and a strong spiritual foundation. Our mission is to embrace all children in our society, particularly those who are underserved, transforming them into whole adults - spiritually, academically, physically and socially - and launching them into lives of purpose and contribution.Imani achieves its mission by delivering educational excellence bolstered by a tradition of faith that has long been the beacon of hope for African Americans amidst centuries of persistent racism and oppression.
