E3 Gala Brings Community Together to Educate, Enrich, Empower

Our E3 Gala was a tremendous success. We celebrated the work we do everyday to educate, enrich, and empower the young people we serve, introduced many new people to our work, and inspired them to support the mission. Together, we welcomed 280 guests and raised $269,000 in gross revenue, surpassing our goal of $250,000 and 250 guests.

We had the honor of welcoming Dianne Robertson Braddock, her daughter and nephew. We received an inspiring keynote from Shermann “Dilla” Thomas on the power of relationships among youth in our communities and the crucial role longstanding community centers play in fostering those relationships. We also saw the return of Jacoby Cochran, from City Cast Chicago, as our master of ceremonies.
