Annual Fundraising Gala

Our annual Power of Partnerships, Scholarship and Hall of Fame Gala is held yearly, in late spring. It boasts an exciting celebration that include highlighting the efforts and successes of individuals who have given of themselves unselfishly, exciting live entertainment, delicious food, and presentations from a range of individuals connected to the work that MIPO does. That event presents a unique opportunity for the organization to showcase the important progress we have made. Additionally, it is an opportunity for our supporters to celebrate and contribute financially to our cause.

If you are interested in sponsoring our Gala, please send us an email to info@mipoinc.org
