MCA Gala
Tuesday, March 29, 2022

After a two-year hiatus from our main fundraising event, we were especially excited to gather for our seventy-first Multicultural Alliance Gala.


While a little different than past dinners, we specifically selected a location that offers inside and outside space for safer gathering. There were food stations, auction items, and the opportunity to meet new people and connect with individuals who share our mission of building inclusive communities.


At the gala, Jackie Bzostek was posthumously honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award. Jackie's commitment and love of the Multicultural Alliance was evident in the many ways she engaged and participated. She was slated to serve as our 2022 Presiding Chair.

The funds raised through this gala support valuable programming which provide opportunities for people to discuss and share experiences of diverse cultural, racial, religious, and economic concern.  We strive to create harmonious relationships and build sustainable, inclusive communities.
