The 30th Anniversary Cara Gala
April 16, 2021
The 30th Anniversary Cara Gala presented by Jim & Kay Mabie
Our signature event, the 30th Anniversary Cara Gala presented by Jim and Kay Mabie went virtual as we marked 30 years of transforming lives and communities. We also honored a civic and philanthropic visionary, Martin H. Nesbitt, with the Trailblazer Award and a Cara alum, Raahsaan Brown, with the Jesse Teverbaugh Distinguished Alumni Award. See below to watch our virtual Gala, read our program book, and support more job seekers like Raahsaan on their road up from poverty.
If you missed our event, there is still an opportunity to help fuel our next 30 years of this work. You can experience our program below, and if you feel compelled by the stories like Raahsaan’s, please consider making a gift to support this work.
