Inspired to Dream Fundraising Gala

September 9, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm

$65 – $800

Are you ready to see your dreams come to life?!?! Join us on Saturday, September 9th, 2023 as the Dream Upward Foundation in partnership with Inspiring Minds-RDU prepares to conquer uncharted territory in the RTP and surrounding areas!

Party with a purpose! This is a community fundraising event to promote the expansion of the Dream Upward Foundation, a non-profit organization whose mission and vision are to inspire others to continue to pursue their dreams.

What is the Dream Upward Foundation and why should I support it? I’m glad you asked!

The Dream Upward Foundation was born from the acclaimed BECOME H.E.R. Speaker’s series, a half-day event that was designed to empower, encourage, and educate women seeking to find the unique balance between love (whether it be through relationships or marriage), leadership roles, and motherhood while cultivating a holistic wellness agenda. The purpose of the series was to allow women (and men) of all nationalities and backgrounds to collaborate with other like-minded professionals while cultivating long-lasting bonds with one another and gain a community of support as they navigated through challenging situations.

The new face of our brand will maintain the same vision but with a greater footprint that will allow us to serve underserved, indigent populations, and marginalized communities by providing resources to help them conquer challenges in their everyday lives.

Have you ever attended a BECOME Speaker’s Series event? If the answer is no, then you are certainly in for a treat! There will be giveaways, sips, snacks, and so much more! The event will feature local vendor favorites, dope beats, custom desserts, a silent auction, and a vendor’s suite for your shopping needs.

Limited VIP Registrations and Vendor Spaces will be available and are on a first-come, first-served basis!! Stay tuned for more information! Space is limited and tickets are sure to sell out fast!

Wanna know more? Stay tuned for more details!

Doors open at 6pm for all VIP ticketholders. 7pm for all general admission.
