Description

Join The MALIK Foundation Inc. on February 3, 2018 at the luxurious Villa Barone Manor and enjoy an open bar cocktail hour, fine dining, silent auction of beautiful African art, complimentary portraits on the "black carpet", live band and ballroom dancing. All for a worthy cause. The annual Black History Gala celebrating and honoring individuals who exemplify the essence of true community service and have contributed to the development and enrichment of the youth in underserved communities. The theme of the event is "Educating our youth one mind at a time." Your support of this Gala allows the MALIK Foundation to carry out its mission of enriching and building communities of color.

This year’s honorees include:

Honoree and keynote speaker Rev. Calvin O. Butts, Pastor of the Abyssinian Baptist Church in the City of New York, President of the State University of New York College at Old Westbury, and Chairman and founder of the Abyssinian Development Corporation

Honoree Maricruz Clemente, founder of COPI Organization in Loiza, Puerto Rico

Honoree Tai Abrams, founder of AdmissionSquad, a program that aims to help middle schoolers gain entry into NYC's top public high schools through academic enrichment, test prep, academic skills building and application advising

This year, in addition to supporting organizations like the Chionesu Bakari Program for Young Men (a mentorship and rite of passage program for young boys of color in Brooklyn, NY which boasts a 98% college attendance rate), the MALIK Foundation started a comprehensive relief effort for the citizens of Loiza, Puerto Rico whose community was decimated by Hurricane Maria.

See you at the Gala 2018!
