Photo Flash: Inside All Stars Project's 2016 Annual National Gala

On April 18 at Lincoln Center, Gabrielle Kurlander, President and CEO, All Stars Project, Inc., led an evening of inspiration during the All Stars Project 2016 National Gala. The event honored the tremendous contributions of executives from American corporate and educational institutions including EY, MetLife, Hunt Consolidated, PWC and Washington College, and over $2M was raised in support of All Stars programs. The Gala highlighted the Development School for Youth, an All Stars program that partners with the business community to help inner-city young people learn a professional performance, followed by placing them in paid summer internships. This summer, All Stars Project will be placing a record number of 500 young people in internships at 150 companies across the country. Gala attendees and participants were treated to a special hip-hop performance from dozens of alumni and youth leaders from the All Stars Talent Show Network, the All Stars flagship program. Check out photos from the events below!

Over 440 guests from the business and philanthropic community attended the Gala, where they learned about the All Stars Project's work with the law enforcement community to foster positive interactions between the police and inner-city youth, from special guest speakers including Ron Davis, Director, COPS Office, Department of Justice and George Gascon, District Attorney, City of San Francisco.
