WHGA's 45th Anniversary Gala Organized by Face2face Africa- Join Us October 18th

We are proud to be organizing the 45th anniversary gala for West Harlem Group Assistance, Inc. (WHGA), a leading community based development corporation in New York. Join us on Tuesday, October 18th, as we celebrate 45 years of community building and impact in Harlem.

45 years ago, a handful of Harlem citizens determined to rebuild and revitalize a deteriorating neighborhood established WHGA. Since that time, WHGA has been a catalyst for community development and social services, building an affordable housing portfolio comprised of over 1,200 units.

Over the past 44 years, WHGA has maintained an energetic mission to improve Harlem’s physical and economic outlook.

The annual awards were established to honor outstanding leaders in community development, while raising critical funds to support their comprehensive housing development and community programs.

This year’s Gala will honor Reginald Higgins, Principal at Ralphe Bunche School, Hazel Dukes, President, NAACP NYS, and David N. Dinkins, 106th Mayor of the City of New York.

The gala will be an inspirational program where guests will enjoy dinner, cocktails, performances, award presentations, networking and more.

Previous honorees include Adam Weinstein, President of Phipps Houses, Congressman Charles B. Rangel,  Virginia Fields, President and CEO of the National Black Leadership Commission on AIDS, Denise Scott, Executive Vice President of LISC, and many more.
