Living Together: The 16th Annual ACE Gala

October 22 @ 12:00 am - 11:59 pm


The Annual ACE Gala is African Community Education’s signature event of the year, marking a night to celebrate all we have accomplished together since 2006 as we look forward to an even brighter future.

This year’s Gala will take place on Saturday, October 22 and has been imagined as a virtual event.

The event will include a fashion show with ACE students, live music and dance performances, authentic African food from across the continent, raffles, guest speakers, a Black-owned and Immigrant-owned makers and art market, an inside look at ACE's new home, and much, much more!

Our goal for this year's Gala is to raise $150,000 to support ACE's expansion of programs and services! You can support our efforts by buying tickets, donating, or even setting up your own fundraising page on behalf of the kids at ACE. To ensure this event is accessible for all, we invite guests to purchase tickets using our new sliding scale option!
