The 2017 Inspiring Minds Youngstown Black Tie Affair “Halfway to Mardi Gras” will be held October 7, 2017 at Stambaugh Auditorium in Youngstown. The Black Tie event will feature Mardi Gras inspired cuisine, cocktails, auctions, raffles, and so much more!
Inspiring Minds Youngstown launched in 2015 as an affiliate to the work happening with Inspiring Minds Warren, which has been operating since 2006. Our mission is to engage, inspire, and empower youth to reach their full potential. Since breaking ground in the Mahoning Valley, over 2,000 students have participated in Inspiring Minds’ After-School and Summer Enrichment Programs. The exposure and opportunities we offer our students through Education, College & Career Readiness, Health & Wellness and Personal Development have been life changing.
To ensure the success of this event as both a fundraiser and a fun evening for friends and supporters, we are seeking sponsors, donations for the silent auctions, and monetary donations that will help offset the cost of the event. Any donations contributed will not only be appreciated, but will legitimately help to impact the lives of local children in a positive way.
