To All Alumni and Friends:
The JSU Houston Area Alumni Chapter Executive Board has met and decided to CANCEL the Chapter's 2020 "Thee Harlem Renaissance" gala. The governmental guidance to limit in-person gatherings of 10 people or more and the mounting uncertainties concerning the COVID-19 pandemic are the key drivers for cancellation.
The gala is the key scholarship fundraiser for our chapter. Though the gala has been postponed for this year, we urge you to make a donation now so that we will be able to continue our scholarship giving and student activities. You may make your donation using any of the methods below:
Online: Give to HAAC
Additionally, the chapter will cancel all in-person meetings until further notice. In the meantime, please follow all recommendation from local and federal officials to keep your family safe.
Peace and Blessings,
Darryl Pilate, JSU Houston Chapter President
