2nd Annual Mentors & Mimosas Gala

Join The Ashe Academy on Saturday, October 16, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., to celebrate the growth and development of our mentorship and scholarship programs.

We are excited to safely celebrate The Ashe Academy’s most devoted supporters and friends in person, with an afternoon that includes vendor highlights, a silent auction, as well as distinguished featured and keynote speakers. Enjoy a scrumptious brunch on the beautiful grounds of the Chester L. Washington Golf Course.

We will continue doing the work required to bridge the gap between representation and access to education, for students of color pursuing careers in the ARTS and STEM. This event is our largest fundraiser of the year; all monies raised will directly fund our 2022 scholarship awards, mentoring, and parental engagement programs.
