Join us at the John P. Eliopulos Hellenic Center on August 19th, 2023!
The big day may have come and gone, but keep in touch as we’re always up to something new and exciting.
Our 2022 Gala theme, "Beyond All Limits”, taught us to push beyond the limits that we put in our minds and overcome anything that may be in our way. Now, our journey begins. We are not thinking of the past, and we are not projecting the future, but we are living in the present moment, which we know is the realm of all creation. This is the Gift of Now!
The NewColorsProject’s Gala is an annual fundraising event where the NewColorsProject will recognize community partners, local businesses, and community leaders who demonstrate and model excellence in community involvement and youth development. Step into a world of inspiration and empowerment at our Gala, "The Gift Of Now." This enchanting evening serves as a beacon of hope for youth and young adults as we celebrate their journeys of resilience and achievement. Join us in honoring the outstanding recipients of our Senior Portrait Scholarships, capturing their unique stories and preserving memories that will last a lifetime. Be part of the excitement as we unveil our upcoming Antelope Valley Youth Empowerment Summit (YES!), a gathering of bright minds and visionary leaders, igniting a spark of passion and guiding the path to limitless possibilities. Let us unite under the starlit sky, celebrating the present moment and shaping a future filled with promise and potential.
