ABOUT THE 2019 ANKARA BALL
The Ankara Ball was the 2019 signature fundraising event of the Scholarship Initiative of Grace. It supports scholarship awards to over 80 college scholars who currently participate in MOCCA (Ministry of College and Career Alliance) and who attend colleges and universities throughout the United States and abroad.
The ball took the form of an African-themed formal dinner dance that celebrated African and African-American culture. The Ankara Ball also recognized the 400th anniversary of Africans brought to the U.S. as slaves. We celebrated the achievements of two MOCCA Alumni who have distinguished themselves through their professional or life’s work, and presented the Founder’s Award to Mrs. Inez Richardson.
