DAAOE Overcomers Gala 2017
Fri, May 19, 2017, 7:00 PM – 9:30 PM EDT
Destiny's Achievers Academy of Excellence (DAAOE) first annual Overcomers Gala was created as a fundraising vehicle to bridge the gap between student needs and limited educational budgets. This year's Gala has the noble goal of raising $50,000 to purchase laptops for our students to bridge the 'digital divide' our students face. Due to the socioeconomic levels of our students, many do not have access to the technology they need to complete homework assignments. Together we can level the playing-field for all students through our giving.
The average student enters Destiny's Achievers Academy of Excellence with a 1.4 GPA, however due to the support they receive 75% of students are graduating with a 2.1 GPA or higher and 30% pursue post-secondary education. Help us continue our quest to educate, uplift, and empower the next generation through our first annual Overcomers Gala as we celebrate the accomplishments of our students and community partners.
