The Mary Lou & Arthur F. Mahone Fund will be hosting the 20th anniversary of the "Reaching for Rainbows" Pursuit of Excellence Gala on May 5, 2018. In addition to awarding 13 college scholarships, we will honor longtime supporters Shebaniah Muhammad, Educators Credit Union and the Ladies of Delta Sigma Theta & Employees Mutual Benefits Association – Central Chapter with the Signature Award.

Proceeds from our gala support the Career Exploration Organization (CEO) mentoring program aiding low-to-moderate income youth in their pursuit of higher education, career planning and community service. Join our family of friends and supporters as our goal of reducing the financial barriers impacting college access and affordability for many first-generation students continues.

In Loving Memory of Our Dear Friend

"Becoming wise is not the same as being smart. Being smart means knowing what is. Being wise means knowing what matters. I've learned that to become wise I had to be willing to learn from all people."
