Annual Gala - 2022

Thank you to our 2022 Gala attendees and sponsors!

Annual Gala Information

On Saturday, April 30, 2022, we hosted over 200 guests at River’s Casino Philadelphia for our Annual Gala which recognized, “Our Teachers, Our Heroes.” This special theme was inspired by the extraordinary front-line work performed by local educators throughout the pandemic. 30 teachers & administrators attended the event as our guests where they accepted our “Educator of the Year Award.”

In addition to honoring teachers, we recognized two very special PAI supporters for the achievements in our community. Independence Blue Cross, with the Stand and Deliver Award and Dr. Kathleen McCladdie with the Principal of the Year Award.

Thanks to the incredible support of our individual and corporate donor community, we raised over $200,000. These funds allow us to continue providing critical programming in service of our missions to, “alleviate poverty by creating opportunities for underserved students to thrive.”

There is still time to show your support! If you missed participating in our appeal, you can donate here!

We’d like to again thank our fantastic presenting sponsor, Independence Blue Cross as this event would not have been possible without their support. We’d also like to recognize our generous Platinum sponsors, Amerihealth Caritas and PECO, our Gold Sponsors, HM Insurance, The Nuebauer Family Foundation, OneDigital, Pennsylvania Convention Center and Stradley Ronon.

And thanks to all PAI Gala sponsors, supporters and friends who made this event possible. We would love for you to join us next year!"
