The Gala’s Impact: 

Thanks to the funds raised from our annual event, programs such as Summer Camp for middle school students, Summer Study Abroad for high school students as well as both the College Incentive Program and Career Acceleration Program are available to all UA alumni at no cost. These are just a few of the essential programs we fund and manage which play a large role in closing the opportunity gap for UA students and alumni.
