Preparations Underway For 2012 Annual Gala

HCHRA’s 18th Annual Gala to be Held on Friday, September 21, 2012

Hinds County Human Resource Agency (HCHRA) will host its 18th Annual Awards & Recognition Gala on Friday, September 21, 2012, at 7:00 p.m. at the Jackson Marriott Hotel in downtown Jackson.  This year’s speaker is Dr. Jerry Young, pastor of New Hope Baptist Church.  Entertainment will be provided by “Amos B” – Saxophonist Extraordinaire.

This year marks a signficant milestone for HCHRA as we celebrate 35 years of providing quality education and community programs that have positively impacted the lives of thousands.  The Gala will help provide critical matching funds for several of our programs and gives us an opportunity to celebrate the achievements of individuals who have defied the odds and overcome challenging life circumstances.  We also recognize our community partners that work with us throughout the year to help eradicate poverty and provide a better life for more than 52,000 low-income citizens in Hinds County.  Tickets for this event are $50.00 per person. General donations are also welcome. For information on tickets or advertising, call (601) 923-1838.

At Hinds County Human Resource Agency, our goal is to help families and strengthen communities.  We have built a solid reputation in eradicating poverty by empowering disadvantaged Hinds County citizens to become self-reliant and realize their full potential.
