Under New Management -Effective 1/1/23
Remember schools remain open and are STILL expensive, therefore we will continue to fund raise for our students who will need our support more than ever.
Education is the key to a truly "New Normal"
THIS IS WHY WE PAY IT FORWARD WITH OUR SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM...
(We* Have Funded Just Over $280,000 In Scholarships During An Eight Year Period)
2022 WAS IS A RECORD FUNDRAISING YEAR!!!
*Coupled With The African American Club Of The Villages
The Sophisticated Gents established and maintained as an organization in The Villages
and surrounding communities of central Florida is organized exclusively for charitable,
community service, educational, and emotional fellowship, including, for such
purposes, the making of distributions to organizations that qualify as exempt
organizations under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, or the
corresponding section of any future federal tax code.
WE Celebrate African American Achievements YEAR ROUND because the TRUTH has been suppressed since 1619...
