The Circle Foundation's 9th Annual Gala and Awards Dinner

March 22, 2018

The Circle Foundation's 9th Annual Gala and Awards Dinner took place at Alhambra Palace in Chicago on Sunday, March 18th, 2018. The Annual Gala is in support of Innovations Charter High School. Innovations High School was founded in 2008 by Omar Moore and LaShaun Jackson. The Co-Founders saw a need for an at risk high school and took over when the previous school was closing. The high school services over 450 at risk youth. The Circle Foundation's mission is to develop resilient critical thinkers in a supportive community through arts integration, writing, and character development.

NFL Player Matt Forte returned for the second year as special guest host and he presented a $10K scholarship on behalf of his foundation What's Your Forte? to Innovations Student of the Year, Cierra Holmes. Congrats to Cierra and we wish her well on her future endeavors.  Check out a few photos from the event below.
