A Virtual Visit to Rural Nigeria

About The Gala

This year's event will be a virtual trip to Nigeria, via Zoom - featuring Nigerian cuisine, traditional cultural performances, exclusive giveaways and more! 

We will be providing an intimate glimpse into the lives of the children we serve and will feature a virtual tour of Divine Providence Home and Colmcille Memorial Academy, as well as a brief introduction to their leaders. We will walk you through one of Nigeria's vibrant outdoor markets and quickly demonstrate the preparation of a traditional Nigerian meal, guided by a caretaker and cook of the children of Divine Providence Home.
