The Seventeenth Annual Grand Dinner & Gala will be held on Saturday, April 6, 2013 at Savannah State University Student Union Ballroom.
The Gala is an annual fundraiser benefiting the 100 Black men of Savannah’s mentoring and outreach programs for children and youth of Savannah, GA. The fundraiser is the primary event to recognize the graduates of the Youth Leadership Academy who are pursuing post secondary educations and are being awarded scholarships for their achievement. We have provided over $250,000 in scholarships since 1996 to over 200 students. This event enables the organization to provide educational support and motivation to empower all children and teens through our four core mentoring programs. The 100 Black Men of Savannah, Inc. are committed to empowering Savannah’s young people through education, financial literacy, health and wellness, and leadership development. In addition, the Annual Grand Scholarship Gala awards 12- 15 young adults with educational scholarships that may be used for tuition, training, books or other needs.
The 100 Black Men of Savannah was organized in 1996. Its legacy is one of hard work, innovative solutions, and an unwavering commitment to mentoring and empowering Savannah’s young people.
