Save the Date - 12th Annual Achieving Dreams Celebration Gala 

April 23, 2018

Save the Date:  Project GRAD Akron will host our Twelfth Annual Achieving Dreams Celebration Gala on Saturday, October 13, 2018.  This year, our signature fundraiser will be held at the John S. Knight Convention Center in downtown Akron, Ohio.  We are very pleased that each year we have increased the number of participants and we are moving to a larger venue to accommodate our growing audience.  Proceeds from this fundraiser will support our organization’s programs, services, and scholarship fund to benefit students in the Akron Public Schools.  Project GRAD Akron is supported by so many caring people who fervently believe in our motto that “Graduation Really Achieves Dreams.
