About this Event

Council Member Calvin Hawkins has partnered with student leaders from the University of Maryland, College Park to host "Cultural Crossover: Rising Through the Arts." In light of the recent tragedies caused by Hurricane Maria in 2017 and recently Hurricane Dorian, together we are raising awareness and gathering supplies to send to our neighbors in The Bahamas and Puerto Rico.

Ambassador Collie of The Bahamas and Congresswoman Gonzalez-Colon of Puerto Rico have been invited to address the crowd on the status of the devastation and how the donated supplies will be utilized. The evening will include musical/dance performances and spoken word surrounding the theme of rising above our challenges. A food buffet will be provided during the duration of the event. Admission is free with donation of any of the supplies below:

Bottled water

Clothing

Bedding materials

Non-perishable food

Mosquito nettings

Personal hygiene products

Medical supplies
