Press Release (ePRNews.com) - BALTIMORE - Feb 06, 2017 - The Fashion Umbrella Foundation will host its first annual Gala and Impact Awards Presentation at the water front venue of the Columbus Center, 701 E. Pratt Street, Baltimore, Maryland.
The Gala is a FUNDraising event to create a financial cushion for freshmen and sophomore students who are registered and attending a college or university. It’s a fact that 8 Million out of 20 Million college students do not complete required course assignments to achieve a degree due to lack of funds each year. Because of this obstacle, the foundation is reinstating its scholarship program.
“To make this a successful fundraising campaign, we are seeking support from organizations and community members to help lessen the financial burden most students experience within the first two years of college. With the Gala in place as a FUNDraiser, this will assist in minimizing that burden,” stated, Sharan Nixon, Founder Fashion Umbrella Foundation.
During the Gala, the Fashion Umbrella will also recognize individuals with an Impact Award. The Fashion Umbrella Foundation’s Impact Award is presented to individuals and/or organizations who created a humanistic shift in someone else’s life; and/or injected vibrancy and sustainability within a community
