WASHINGTON, D.C. (September 24, 2015) – Africare’s annual Bishop John T. Walker Memorial Dinner Gala will be held Saturday, December 5, 2015, at the Marriott Wardman Park in Washington, D.C.
This year’s event will honor multiple long-time Africare supporters such as Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated. Alpha Kappa Alpha is an Africare Life Member, and the sorority has provided steadfast support to Africare’s programs through their international headquarters and individual chapters for more than three decades.
Africare’s Bishop John T. Walker Memorial Dinner Gala is one of the nation’s largest annual fundraising events for Africa. The event honors the memory of Bishop John T. Walker, who served as Africare’s Board Chairman and as the first African-American Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Washington, D.C. Throughout his life, Bishop Walker distinguished himself as an exemplar of peace, justice and interracial harmony. The Gala also connects individuals from diverse fields committed to empowering Africans to improve their lives, and the event rallies support for Africare’s community-based programs across Africa.
