Description

JOIN US for Foundation Ball 2019: 200 Years Young and celebrate 200 Years of Alabama History and the young people past and present who help push our great state forward!

Each year, the Rotaract Club of Birmingham celebrates its impact through the Annual Foundation Ball. This year, we are joining forces with Alabama’s Bicentennial Committee as an officially registered Bicentennial Event! We are partnering with the City of Birmingham and Mayor Woodfin’s team to help expand our celebration and share Rotaract’s impact within the community and beyond. All proceeds from the event go to sponsor Rotaract's three main signature service projects:

  • Achieve Alabama, the first free state-wide scholarship database in the country, which was created by the Rotaract Club of Birmingham in collaboration with community partners to provide a readily accessible platform to all Alabama high school students with customized scholarship opportunities attributes and demographics. In just its second year, the database has already accumulated over 27,000 scholarships totaling over $11,000,000,000, and over 155,000 Alabama high school students have already registered for the service.
  • Ready2Succeed, a mentorship program designed to provide high-achieving local high school students in the Birmingham City School System with guidance, encouragement, and resources to prepare for the college admissions process, from ACT preparation to college tours, to one-on-one counseling with career and higher education professionals as students navigate the college application process in hopes of attaining higher education degrees. Although the program has only been piloted in one Birmingham high school, the model is scalable, and we hope to continue to expand.
  • Ready2Read, a reading comprehension program that provides a classroom library to second-grade classrooms throughout the Birmingham City School System and promotes literacy, reading comprehension skills, and a love of reading to impressionable and adaptable young minds. Approximately 40 of our members volunteer as reading buddies in these classrooms, and research is underway to further quantify the program’s impact.


    This black tie event will be open to ticket holders only and is for ages 21 and up. There will be a VIP lounge for certain ticket members, live music, food and alcohol, raffles, prizes, a table for last-minute donations and more!

    The Foundation Ball will take place on Saturday April 6th 2019 from 8:00 PM – 12:00 AM at the newly renovated ‘The Theodore’, located at 3211 2nd Avenue S, Birmingham, AL 3522. There will be valet and security on site and the venue is handicap accessible.
