Purpose of Banquet

To raise funds for all of our performing art groups that specializes in educational and developmental programs.  Your donations and support will give us the capacity to help more youth at risk in our developmental programs to learn and experience the benefits of the arts, especially in Camden, New Jersey, Philadelphia Pennsylvania and surrounding areas Many have said that our banquet was the most dynamic performing arts showcase extravaganza that they have ever seen in America.

This is the only event within the year that all of our WORLD RENOWNED performing arts groups, showcase for promoters, school administrators, political, religious, community leaders, celebrities and dignitaries for future bookings and events. This is also the event in which we invite and encourage our supporters, family, friends and members to attend as it is Unity Community Center's most important hosted event of the year to also witness how the young people are growing and developing.

You will witness the manifestations of the solutions and a model of what scholars and leaders talk and write about concerning the social ills or problems of youth at-risk, by some of the most accomplished educational and entertainment groups in AMERICA.  We believe that we have been blessed with the guaranteed formula to save and develop children

We will be honoring young people and children, who have represented the BEAUTY and the HOPE of young people in the State of New Jersey especially the City of Camden and the Delaware Valley, including Philadelphia, PA., through the performing arts.

*  Unity Community Center exemplify the importance of a safer and better community.
*  We specialize in programs and presentations addressing issues that destroy our community with hatred, crime,
     violence, killings and other social ills.
*  We serve as a model to encourage others to start organizations local, national and international to do the same.
*  Remember, there are not that many organizations left serving youth and communities at-risk, that display,
     educate, teach and encourage cultural pride, dignity, appreciation, love of self, family, community and nation.

This year and years to come, bring a family member(s) or friend(s) to witness
one of the most exciting banquets of miraculous young people and entertainment in America
