About this event

The 2nd Annual SEBAS Foundation Emerge Gala to Benefit Refugees

The 2nd Annual SEBAS Foundation Emerge Gala will feature a masquerade ball and will be hosted at the prestigious Mejestic Metro. The ball includes an art exhibition by celebrity artists, Ange Hillz and Chukwunonso Ofili, who will mesmerize the audience with their live show. Live music will be feature by pianist Angela Nickel and Anthony Rejev. The event will also feature a silent and live auction.

The 2023 Emerge Awards will also be presented. The award is given to a recipient who embodies the “Emerge” spirit; a refugee or migrant who has captured the American spirit. Someone who has demonstrated the ability to adapt, hardworking, and a success in his/her field of work; someone who can inspire others.

The Non-Profit of The Year Award will be awarded to The Refugee Services of Texas - an agency dedicated to welcome refugees, asyless, survivors of trafficking, and other displaced peoples.

Why we exist:

Refugees or displaced people face many challenges, most are fleeing or have fled their home countries due to ethnic cleansing, political persecution, or natural disasters. They face even further challenges when trying to integrate into a new country, understand cultural nuances, navigate social-economic norms, earn a living, become self-reliable, and become positive contributors to the overall success of their adoptive country.

What our mission is:

The SEBAS Foundation is a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Organization with a mission is to help alleviate some of the challenges refugees/displaced people face during one of the most crucial times in their lives through:

  • Offering refugees, a safe space to connect with other refugees
  • Provide job placement
  • Financial assistance
  • Mentorships
  • Community resources

Who we are fundraising for:

This year we are teaming up with the Refugee Services of Texas in our quest to provide assistance to a refugee family. Proceeds from this year's event will fund the purchase of an automobile for a refugee family in need.
