Project:NOW Makes Donation to INROADS at 2018 Benefit Gala

Project:NOW and City Gala were proud to present a check to INROADS, Inc. during last week’s #INROADSBenefitGala in support of their outstanding programs dedicated to increasing diversity in corporate America through training and internships.

INROADS is the leader in this space, impacting the lives of over 154,000 youth; has over 28 offices serving nearly 2,000 interns at over 200 companies; and has over 28,000 alumni worldwide who have benefitted from its programs over its almost 50 years of operating.

The Gala was sponsored by Procter and Gambleand the Mistress of Ceremonies was veteran actress, Ion Overman (Madea Goes To Jail, The L Word). Honorees of the evening included INROADS alumni Caleb Tacuri, PwC’s Tim Rice, Google’s Darryl Willis, and The Will And Jada Smith Family Foundation, among other leaders in the community.

Project:NOW’s donation was made through Project:NOW co-founder, The Arthur Wylie Entrepreneurship And Leadership Fund (AWELF), and was derived from a commitment of $1.2 million raised for the Project:NOW initiative during a year-long fundraising campaign with City Gala.

We couldn’t be more excited to share that through AWELF, we have committed to expanding our support of INROADS over the years to come!

CONGRATS on an extraordinary evening, INROADS, we look forward to working with you to build brighter futures for young people around the world!

Launching CITY GALA 2018 – For Project:NOW Initiative

Dale Godboldo

What an EXTRAORDINARY night!! My Project:NOW initiative held our first campaign rally for CITY GALA 2018 in Newport Beach, CA at the Lincoln Experience Center, with a packed house of socially conscience leaders in business and philanthropy! With over 200 guests, we highlighted the work of Project:NOW and 3 of our other City Gala beneficiaries: Conscious Capitalism,Brilliant Futures Foundation, and the Firelife Foundation. We also held a special screening of Henning Morales’ “Dirt Merchants,” and had a chance to hear from Inc. Magazine contributor, Tracy Leigh Hazzard.

Our City Gala Campaign Rallies are free events produced throughout the year, and around the country, in the run-up to the evening of the post-OSCARS event. The purpose of these rallies is to educate and inspire our network, and activate and expand our global community of supporters.
A very special thank you to Ryan Long, founder and…
