Description

Urban Oasis Community Events Center would like to thank you for your interest in the Urban Oasis Community Scholarship Celebration. This scholarship celebration was created as a way to first, assist local community organizations that provide healthy and educational activities for our youth with the funds they need to purchase materials and second, as a way of honoring those that continue to give freely of their time to provide activities for our youth. Getting involved in activities outside of school can help students meet new people with whom they share interest and improve their social skills. Extracurricular activities also help students expand their network, which is beneficial for finding career opportunities after graduation. Sadly many inner city youth would not have this opportunity to participate in many of these activities if it were not for local community based organizations.

The Urban Oasis Community Scholarship Celebration will be held Saturday, March 2, 2019 at Urban Oasis Community Events Center from 5 PM to 9 PM. Urban Oasis welcomes Foster care advocate Melro Potter from TED Talk as one of our special guest speakers and Author, Public Speaker, YWCA Lifetime Achievement Award Winner and Peoples Justice Project Advocate Tammy Alsaada.
The goal of this event is to act as a fundraiser so that Urban Oasis and sponsors can not only award a local organizations with funds to purchase needed materials but so we can continue to provide other organizations with the opportunity to receive the funds they need. The first organization we would like to honor is Prancing Buckeyes Cheer Elite. Prancing Buckeyes Cheer Elite is lead by Cheer Director Tiawni Walker. The Prancing Buckeyes Elite Cheer team embodies the cardinal values of compassion, dedication, patience, perseverance, and sportsmanship. They challenge their cheerleaders to "Train Insane or Remain the Same," Currently PBE is in need of mats for their new gym. Our goal is to raise $2,500 though ticket sales and donations to be able to not only purchase mats but stunt stands and additional items needed to help this squad of 45 young ladies be all they can be.

We are currently seeking event volunteers, if you provide a product or service you would like to donate please contact myself, Brandy Jackson directly via email or the contact information below. We are also in need of event sponsors for items such as food and drink cost as well as monetary donations for the scholarship award.

Donation checks can be made out to and mailed to:
