Description

Sponsorship opportunities available! See below for details.

Our Annual Fundraising Gala is an event planned by a rapidly growing Houston-based 501(c)(3) non-profit to inform the community what our organization, The Troubled Movement, Inc. has planned for teens and young adults around the world and raise money for our programs and upcoming events.

Did you know?

  • 1 in 4 girls are sexually abused before the age of 18 and 34% are abused by a family member.
  • Suicide is the third leading cause of death for teenagers age 12-18. 20% of those are depressed.
  • By age 23, up to 41 percent of American adolescents and young adults have been arrested at least once for something other than a minor traffic violation.

The Troubled Movement is here to help the teens and young adults suffering from the troubled stage they feel like they can’t escape. As a survivor of sexual assault, depression, and a fatherless teenage life, I know firsthand how difficult it is to reach out to your family, friends, or the community. The fear of embarrassment and judgement overwhelms teenagers and causes them to suffer in silence. We are here to say, “Stop the violence. Release the silence.” This year we will have a special award ceremony for the winners of our 2018 Dennis Stoot Scholarship. Dinner will be served. Silent auctions and raffles will take place. There will be a videographer and photographer for memorable moments. Most of all there will be a chance for the community of Houston and surrounding areas to come together and do something positive for our youth. Vendor opportunities also available. We want our attendees to leave this gala filled with assurance that this movement will impact teens and young adults around the world.


Join us in celebrating the winners of our 2018 Dennis Stoot Scholarship as a part of our annual Learning Never Stops (L.E.N.S) Series. Winners will be announced at a later date.


Live Performances:

Nessaja Camille Sharber is a 14-year-old high school freshman who has studied dance at Divine Dance Academy in Pearland since 2010. She has studied many genres of dance, but her main focus is ballet and contemporary. In 2016, she was named an Ambassador for the Brown Girls Do Ballet organization, and has been working to inspire young girls and bring awareness of ballerinas of color to her community. This year Nessaja has earned the leading role in her dance studio’s production of Cinderella. She has also earned a place at the American Ballet Theatre’s 2018 Summer Intensive in Austin, Texas where she will train for four weeks alongside talented dancers from around the country. Nessaja aspires to become a professional ballerina and eventually train future generations of dancers to do the same.

"Hiiiiiii! I’m Kiersten! I’m 17 years old, I go to Lamar High School, I love playing piano, dancing, and singing. I’m a dancer for the Lamar Rangerettes. My bubbly and delightful spirit makes everyone smile." Kiersten Joe will be singing a solo at our 2019 gala. As leader of her church's praise team, Kiersten has the voice of an angel and we can't wait to share it with you.
