I had an incredible time at the Y.O.G.A. for Youth: Gala Fundraiser, which "I AM THE DREAM" campaign benefitted at-risk children throughout the United States. It was my first time visiting the Marrakesh House, and it was wonderful. The event had a great turnout and was attended by some amazing people; there was such a strong, loving energy there. The night was topped off with some delicious food, samples from various vendors, and several inspiring performances.

Most importantly, the gala was a fundraiser for Y.O.G.A. for Youth, which is a non-profit organization that brings yoga, meditation, breathing techniques, chanting, deep relaxation and stimulating discussions on the philosophy of yoga to urban youth.
 
Performances by:
  • Galen and Gentry Gorg ~ breath-taking performance
  • Aykanna ~ beautiful music
  • AdorĂ© ~ fun belly dancing
  • Tom Freund ~ peaceful music
  • Amore One & J Brave of the Luminaries ~ inspiring hip hop
