On Monday December 4th, 2017 – MALA (Muslim American Leadership Alliance) is holding its second Annual Gala at Gentleman’s Cooperative (111 W. Jackson) to raise money for our scholarship program to empower a new generation of leaders.
MALA’s Scholar Program aims to empower students with the knowledge and resources to successfully complete a higher education, while providing scholarship and leadership services.
Education’s engine of opportunity becomes an agent of change. Education has long been called the “great equalizer” in helping families and individuals attain the American dream. Scholarships represent an antidote to inequality, a pathway to diversity and enriched societies. This will help lead our nation going forwards, whilst mentoring the generations to come.
The event is going to feature a special performance and EP release by the Artist known as Yonee. Originally from Orlando, FL., YONEE started playing the piano at a young age and years later was a touring DJ while in college at University of Chicago. He further pursued his passion by mastering music production on his own and DJ-ing colleges around the country which included University of Texas, Stanford University, and Florida State to name a few. Now, living in Los Angeles, he’s ready to release his first EP infused with his infectious energy and natural positivity.
