THIS YEAR'S THEME: BACK TO THE FUTURE

BACK TO THE FUTURE

This year our Theme is Back to the Future. Some of our future changed during the last 2 years with the pandemic. The future the graduates expected during graduation, walking across a stage with everyone yelling and clapping changed, our future vacation plans changed, and so much more. But now we are back to being able to plan our futures in real time. 

At Saving Our Youth, we are also back to our future with in-person programs again. Please join us at our gala to help us to continue to be able to do this important work. Come out to meet the youth, have a nice dinner, visit our store and auction items, and enjoy yourself. 

The tickets are $25. Dinner includes your choice of meats: fried chicken, baked chicken or ham; potato salad; string beans; coleslaw.  

The MC and most of the entertainment will be performed by our current youth and youth who graduated from our program.

Location: Six Points Innovation Center, 3001 Meadowbridge Rd., Richmond, VA  23222
