The Portraits of Excellence Gala, now in its second year, is The Imani School's signature black-tie gala that directly benefits the operating fund, which in turn supports all areas including our academic, athletic, and arts programs. This year the gala will bring out elected officials, celebrities, parents, staff and the city's philanthropists for a glamorous evening of fine dining, entertainment, dancing, and silent and live auction bidding.
