2017 Gala & Silent Auction

A Party With a Purpose


The Urban League of Greater Southwestern Ohio’s 29th Annual Gala & Silent Auction will take place on Saturday, September 23, 2017 at the Duke Energy Convention Center. This year’s theme remains “An Evening to Soar”.

The Gala & Silent Auction is the League’s major annual fundraiser. For many years the League has relied on this event to generate the revenue necessary to continue delivering its empowering Life Ready training programs.  Proceeds will provide critical support for the League’s programs in both Greater Cincinnati and Dayton.  

The Urban League of Greater Southwestern Ohio is dedicated to the enhancement of economic opportunity and stability for individuals, families and emerging businesses within the League’s service region.  Support of the annual Gala is a means to directly fund and impact the programs and services offered by the League.  

This year’s Gala will continue the support of The Urban League’s key programmatic initiatives:

  • youth and adult life ready training
  • workforce development and job placement
  • entrepreneurship and business development

The League has served tens of thousands of individuals over its   sixty-eight (68) years of service. These programs impact thousands of individuals and families throughout the League’s service region.  Your support of the Urban League’s mission and its Gala is appreciated.
