The Ivy Community Foundation, Inc. has funded collegiate scholarships through your generous contributions and support in past. This year The Ivy Community Foundation, Inc. and Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., Kappa Omega Chapter will celebrate the Harlem Renaissance – in its salute to Fashion, Dance and Music. Harlem On My Mind - From Ragtime to Rap will be an exquisite evening of art, entertainment and fashion. We invite you to come as you are or dress in Harlem inspired attire. You can pay tribute with a hat, gloves, beads or a pocket watch. It is up to you.

Tributes will be paid during vignettes to the fashion, dance, and music of the1920’s when Ragtime, a precursor to Jazz was just ending, to its influence on contemporary fashion, dance and rap music. This multi-generational event will have you on the edge of your seat from the time you enter the Harlem Inspired reception to the elegant designs that you will see. Harlem On My Mind - From Ragtime to Rap salutes the Harlem Renaissance and its reverberating effect on American culture from 1918 - 2018.
