9th Annual Charity
Basket Auction Gala
We, The Johns Hopkins University African Students Association, would like to extend to you a warm invitation to our Annual Basket Auction Gala. The Basket Auction Gala will be held on March 4th, 2017. It will be a night of diverse performances and an exquisite dinner shared over the rewarding atmosphere of charitable competition in which 100 percent of the proceeds raised will be donated to a charity the Hopkins community chooses.
JHU ASA compromises of a group of students of African and non-African descent dedicated to education and enlightenment. Our mission to provide a network of support for African students at JHU, challenge misconceptions concerning African life and experiences, and operate as both a service/social organization.
As students we acknowledge the issues around us but refrain from action either out of fear that we are inadequately equipped or in pursuit of academic excellence. The Basket Auction Gala provides us all with an opportunity to do something now. By raising money as a community we teach ourselves and others that one does not need to wait to make change. Overall, the Gala encourages us all to appreciate the international cultures around us and to engage in tangible service to the African community.
