Black Tie Gala

13th Annual Black Tie Gala

The Hope Chest Scholarship Foundation’s Board of Directors, Gala Committee Members, sponsors, benefactors, patrons, and friends enjoyed a wonderful night celebrating a worthy cause at our annual black tie gala! October 29, 2016 brought about another opportunity for our supporters to join HCSF’s educational movement and celebration of our 12th Annual Black Tie Gala, “The Moon, The Music, The Mission”. This invigorating event continues to serve as the premier annual fundraising initiative designed to close the financial gap of students aspiring towards higher education.

We had the distinct pleasure of honoring humanitarian and community activist, Donita Judge, ESQ. Donita serves as Senior Attorney with The Advancement Project. Donita’s work with this notable organization is akin to HCSF’s relentless efforts to positively influence the lives of others in need of assistance.

This magical event was held at the beautiful Annunciation Center at the College of Saint Elizabeth. The night of creative cocktails, delicious food, and musical concert performed by Patrice Jegou, was hosted by two-time Emmy award winner A.J. Calloway. What a beautiful evening to remember!

Please join us in the fall of 2017 for our 13th Annual Black Tie Gala. Stay tuned for more details!
