Welcome to the first NativeVision Virtual Gala!
After many years of festive NativeVision galas, we decided to try a different way to raise support and awareness for NativeVision this year. Introducing the first NativeVision In Spirit Gala! Although we will miss seeing our NativeVision friends and supporters, we recognize that with no venue, food or drink costs, 100% of your gift can go directly toward allowing more children to benefit from NativeVision’s powerful, life-changing programs.
There are several ways to participate in the In Spirit Gala. As you’ll see on the link below, you can donate by purchasing a ticket or sponsoring a table; these donations will go toward the general costs of putting on the camp and after-school programs. You can also donate toward specific items such as the college scholarships awarded at camp each year, or equipment for your favorite NativeVision sports clinic. And you can participate in our online auction, which includes exciting sports memorabilia and vacation packages.
So this year, be part of NativeVision from the comfort of your own home and in the company of other generous supporters from around the country. Your help will go a long way toward building a brighter, healthier future for American Indian children.
ATTEND THE NATIVEVISION "IN SPIRIT GALA" NOW!
American Indians and Alaska Natives suffer the poorest health, socioeconomic, and educational status of any racial or ethnic group in the country. Native Vision is an innovative, strengths-based approach that promotes healthy lifestyles, the pursuit of education, cultural connectedness, fitness and nutrition among Native youth through a sports engagement strategy. It is propelled by professional and collegiate athlete volunteers paired with Johns Hopkins public health experts and tribal leaders. The overall goal is to protect, strengthen, and inspire the next generation of Native leaders.
Now going into its 20th year, NativeVision was launched in 1996 by Johns Hopkins Center for American Indian Health in partnership with the NFL Players Association and Nick Lowery Charitable Foundation. Free of charge for all who participate, it now serves 1,500 American Indian youth annually through intensive summer camps and after-school programs. Learn more at NativeVision.org.
