Organized by: Angela Jumpa
This fundraiser is to raise money to bring encouragement to the youth of the bronx, who have been surrounded by little encouragement in excelling in their education. The money we raise will be used to fund an event known as a Coronation Gala. These kids range from the ages 5 to 15, and they all come from different backgrounds and have different stories. Some children are foster children, while others have had to live in struggling single parent homes. In the gala, children are honored for their academic success with crowns and a buffet in a banquet hall. We buy them beautiful long gowns for the girls that they would never imagine wearing. They are the kings and queens of the night, and are crowned with tiaras and crowns. This event is an escape for those kids from their problems at homes and gives them motivation to continue in their studies, which they would not receive anywhere else. The reason for its name because we give them an opportunity to have a night that they will always remember and that could change their lives for the better.
