2017 Umoja Soul Kids Showcase Sponsors Wanted

Umoja Soul Kids Showcase Sponsors Wanted

The 2017 BHM Showcase is right around the corner on February 25, 2017 and the Fayetteville Boys and Girls Club Kids Showcase is coming up on March 11 and the Fort Smith Boys and Girls Kids Showcase will be Saturday April 8.

And we are excited to produce these events for you!!!

On Saturday February 25, our youth will be dressing up as Famous African Americans of the Past and Present. Some notable individuals are Madam C.J. Walker, B.B. King, Coretta Scott King, Wilma Rudolph, the Tuskegee Airman and many more.

On Saturday March 11, 2017, youth will choose from diverse lineups from Super Stars such as Adele, Taylor Swift, Beyonce, Bruno Mars, Barack and Michelle Obama, Stephen Curry, Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, Martin Luther King, Jr, Rosa Parks, Michael Jackson, and many more

On Saturday April 8, youth will also choose from Super Stars of the Past and very few of the present with people like Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, George Washington Carver, Anne Frank, Dr. J., Larry Bird, Selena, Prince, Whitney Houston, Maya Angelou and more.

All 3 of these Showcases require a lot of help and support to make this the best event possible for our kiddos. This Saturday, we have 14 youth who have been practicing really hard for 8 weeks. Some youth will participate in all 3 showcases, or 2 or just 1 and they are welcome to do as many as they like.

We anticipate each showcase will yield 15-25 youth, sometimes more. All of our volunteers have been working to make sure our kids have fun being a historical person of the day.

We would like to your support with a donation of $5, $10, $20 or $25 or whatever you would like to give. Your donation will help with items, such as snacks, gift bag items, black history paraphelneia and more at each location. 

Please attend any one of these showcases or attend all 3!

Thank you in advance for your assistance with helping our kids to DREAM and BECOME a SUPERSTAR!!!
