African American Ladies Empowered to Grow Opportunities, A-LEGO, is a social action, nonprofit organization that is comprised of various committees. On Saturday, September 23, 2017 the Education Committee will be hosting the BLACK EDUCATORS’ BALL at the Zoofari Conference Center.

The purpose of the B.E. Ball is to celebrate exceptional educators in our community and raise funds to provide scholarships for deserving students. We believe that it is important to recognize educators for their commitment and compassion to educating and empowering our children. This exciting fundraising event offers an opportunity for educators to network, socialize and re-energize themselves in order to promote excellence in education and our community as a whole. Bring your dancing shoes because the entertainment is sure to get you on your feet!

Tickets can be purchased on Eventbrite.

The Education Committee is now accepting online nominations for our Excellence in Education Awards. The winners will be announced and presented with their awards at the Black Educators’ Ball. The deadline for nominations is June 23, 2017. Tickets to the B.E.Ball are $25 in advance and $30 at the door. A-LEGO is also seeking sponsors and vendors for this fundraising event.
