2018 Black & Gold Ball


Innisbrook Resort & Golf Club - The local chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Incorporated (A Phi A) will once again further the mission of providing deserving young men with scholarship dollars and laptops through its annual Black and Gold Ball. “A Journey Through Music” is this year’s theme. This semi-formal event will be held at the Innisbrook Resort & Golf Club 36750 US Hwy 19 N, Palm Harbor, FL. Attendees can expect dinner, dancing, and live entertainment for their enjoyment. This one of a kind affair begins at 6:00 p.m. on Saturday, May 12th. Tickets are $85 dollars and can be purchased from any member the Gamma Zeta Lambda Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha or online at blackandgoldball18.eventbrite.com .

Along with scholarship funding, proceeds raised will also go towards the many acts of service the Tampa Alphas participate in around the Tampa Bay area. One of the signature initiatives managed by the local chapter is the Men of Tomorrow Program (MOT). The MOT Program is geared toward motivating and mentoring students from underserved communities to continue their education, complete high school and enter college. Middle and high school students are involved in interactive workshops and thoughtful group discussions including FCAT/ACT/SAT test preparation; collage preparation and college tours; financial aid and managing personal finances.

“We encourage the community to come out and support this wonderful event says Chapter President Howard Harris. It will take all of us to invoke the change that we need to see in our communities. We also must continue to shine a light on the paths that lead our young men to successful futures. We can only do that by modeling excellence, encouraging them, and supporting their educational goals!”
