Join the Pittsburgh Chapter of Jack and Jill of America, Inc. for the Presentation Ball 2016. The gala event includes cocktail hour, dinner, dancing and a celebration of ten talented, academically promising African American teens. The Presentation Ball was established in 1982 as an opportunity to celebrate and recognize the accomplishments of their junior and senior high school students in the Pittsburgh Chapter biennially. The ball highlights the academic, civic service and athletic achievements of the chapter’s teens after a yearlong process of workshops and community service activities. These young people will be honored at the Presentation Ball on December 30, 2016 at the Omni William Penn Hotel.
All proceeds from the Ball will benefit two charities. The Jack and Jill of America Foundation, our national charity is an internationally recognized not-for-profit dedicated to providing support for programs that create opportunities for children in the areas of leadership skills training, development, and healthy living. Our second deserving local charity is Gateway Medical Society Journey to Medicine. The mission of the Gateway Medical Society Youth Mentorship Program is to educate and mentor minority pre-adolescent males in the art and science of medicine.
