I just came across photos of the Tri-County Urban League’s largest annual fundraiser, the Black and White Gala, which was held on April 17th in the Peoria Civic Center Ballroom. The evening featured a silent auction, social hour, dinner and concert by Grammy-nominated saxophonist Gerald Albright.
Just a few of the young, black and fabulous folks in attendance:
The Urban League’s funding has remained steady for the last several years, however, expenses continue go up. For that reason, the Urban League will be putting more emphasis on increasing it’s donor base and will introduce two new fundraisers later this year, a golf outing Sept. 27 and a jazz brunch Oct. 24.
