What is an unGALA?
The College Mentors for Kids unGALA is our take on a “sophisticated” tailgate-inspired celebration; it’s the gala-type celebration without the required formal wear. Join us for a fun night of food stations, games (think corn hole and the like), a silent auction, and entertainment. There will be plenty to do and see so join us in celebrating more than 20 years of matching college students with the most to give to kids who need it most and reaching the monumental milestone of serving more than 25,000 kids.
What Should I Wear?
For the unGALA we encourage folks to skip the formal garb and opt to support their favorite college through school colors or school gear. Just remember, keep it classy!
Who Will Be There?
The unGALA is for long-time supporters and new friends of College Mentors. The crowd will represent local community and business leaders, many of our college student leaders and alumni, and the foundations, corporations and individuals who have been instrumental in building College Mentors into the national, life-changing organization that it is today. Not to mention all of our fabulous sponsors!
What’s the MVP Hour?
The MVP hour will honor special friends of College Mentors for Kids who have been instrumental in our success over the past 20+ years. They represent the many more nationwide who have helped College Mentors for Kids grow to serve more than 2,500 kids with the assistance of 2,800 college students on 33 campuses nationwide.
I’m coming from out of town, where should I stay?
Indianapolis offers many options for overnight accommodations. Because Indy is a booming city, the downtown hotels tend to fill up quickly, so as soon as you know you will be attending the unGALA you’ll want to also make a reservation for your overnight stay. To assist in your search, College Mentors for Kids has a block of rooms at two different hotels.
Indianapolis Marriott North – close to dining, shopping, and entertainment (must book by 10/2)
Candlewood Suites – close to Crane Bay (must book by 9/21)
