DEAR URBAN LEAGUE FRIENDS AND SUPPORTERS:

We invite you to join us in celebration of 80 years of Empowering Communities and Changing Lives as a premier non-profit service provider in Louisiana. This milestone celebration will be held on Saturday, June 16, in the Hyatt Regency New Orleans Celestin Ballroom at 7 p.m., during the Urban League’s Annual Gala.

The Urban League Gala is one of the largest and most recognizable fundraisers in New Orleans, and this year’s theme, “80 Strong and Proud”, will highlight the impact the Urban League has made in the strategic and bold implementation of its mission to eradicate all barriers to equal participation in the economic and social mainstream.

The Annual Gala is a signature fundraising event in support of Urban League programs that focus on early childhood education, college and career readiness, workforce and economic development, educational leadership, parent engagement initiatives, policy and advocacy.

The much anticipated Gala will be attended by a diverse group of corporate sponsors and local businesses, civic leaders, volunteers, and public officials. The festive evening will feature delectable food, dancing, live entertainment and award presentations. This is our time to thank Urban League contributors who by their generosity have provided critical sustainability to the Urban League and its programs throughout the organization’s 80 year history.

As a sponsor, you will be joining a distinguished group of corporations, civic groups, foundations and individuals by participating in the Gala. The work of the Urban League is critical and helps support over 10,000 individuals and families each year. Thank you for your kind consideration, and we look forward to your support.

Yours in the Movement,

Erika McConduit President and CEO
