YES THRIVE to host second annual gala fundraiser Mardi Gras Masquerade for Success, on 2.9.19
By: Yes THRIVE
"YES, THRIVE successfully launched its freshman year in the fall of 2018, accepting the first cohort of urban males in the Dallas County. We've already been able to help 18 participants, with more than 10 S.T.E.M. professionals teaching, presenting and interacting with these young men, and the year is not over,", according to Co-Founder Keon Morning. "It costs nearly $6,300 to provide services to participants for one school year. Imagine how many more young men we could help, and how much better we could do by reaching the goal of $50,000 from our gala fundraiser this year!" It's an adventurous goal, but our friends and sponsors are up for the challenge.
Last year, the event raised more than enough to launch its first year of Pathway to Success Program for Dallas County urban males who have a desire and objective to study S.T.E.M. at the collegiate level and enter the S.T.E.M. workforce. The Dallas-based charity hopes proceeds from this year's event will break $50,000.
YES, THRIVE will also honor the astoundingly talent Cohort 001 participants in the Pathway to Success Program. The participants will be recognized at the Gala by the Founder and Co-Founder. We continue to pay tribute to our participants for their dedication throughout the semester to the program.
The Yes THRIVE2nd Annual Fundraising Gala & Silent Auction- "Mardi Gras, Masquerade for Success" will take place on Saturday, February 19, 2019, again, at the beautifully-
