On behalf of INROADS, we would like to thank you for supporting our Inaugural INROADS Benefit Gala on May 10, 2017, at the Hyatt Regency Washington, D.C. Your support on this occasion allowed us to continue to carry out our mission for each and every student we aspire to develop and for our programs.

In celebrating our founder Frank C. Carr’s dream, we had the opportunity to peer into the lives of many transforming the community. From General and Mrs. Powell to Tom Joyner, we honored those who have worked diligently to build our communities in ways unimagined. And to our amazing alumni, Andrew Au, the Honorable Shera Grant and the Honorable Shanta Owens, we thank your for inspiring students to continue to move through INROADS and see the bright futures they have ahead of them.

But, our work is not over. We still need you to continue to give and share our cause with others. Please give your best gift today. With your financial support, we will not only continue our annual programs and events such as our summer Leadership Development Institutes coming up in July, but also add new programs to help benefit many more students who need our help this year.

Kayla Brooks, rising senior in Business Management at Hampton University, said it best during her speech at the INROADS Benefit Gala: “INROADS changed my life … Whether you realize it or not, today, you are sowing a seed. You are laying a foundation. You are building towers.”

Support us today so that we can continue to impact students like Kayla.

Our evening at the Benefit Gala was magical. We want to continue to keep that magic moving to accomplish the mission of INROADS — to develop and place talented underserved youth in business and industry, and prepare them for corporate and community leadership.
