The Friends of Hampton Roads, Inc. (FHR) invite you to join us as a sponsor at our Illuminating the Dreams of Our Youth Annual Scholarship Gala. Your sponsorship will assist us in providing college scholarships to future leaders in our local African-American community. FHR is a non-profit organization that has provided scholarships to high school seniors and third year medical students at EVMS for more than 25 years. We are proud to say that our annual fundraising events have enabled our organization to provide more than $600,000 in scholarships to deserving high school seniors and medical students. These results would not be possible without sponsorship support.
Although our primary focus is raising scholarship money for students seeking a college education, we also provide support to our Hampton Roads community, to include the Food Bank and other Non Profit Organizations. Our Illuminating the Dreams of Our Youth Annual Scholarship Gala will be held on Saturday, September 10, 2016 at the Portsmouth Renaissance Hotel in Portsmouth, Virginia. This epic event will feature the soulful sounds of R&B legends, DRU HILL. Hosting this elegant evening will be Anita Blanton, anchor of WAVY TV 10. By supporting this endeavor, you will have the opportunity to market your services to the attendees, as well as highlight your commitment to building future leaders.
We are offering different levels of sponsorships and distinguished advertising in our souvenir program-booklet. Enclosed you will find the sponsorship package. Please review the information and feel free to contact Pat King, MD at 757-636-7713 with any questions. We look forward to your support in this worthwhile initiative and hope that you will join us as a sponsor.
With Warm Regards,
Darra K. White, Ph.D.
