Emerging 100 Houston to host scholarship gala for minority underprivileged youth

HOUSTON (Press Release) — Leading their communities through their five pillars, Emerging 100 Houston’s main purposes are the following: mentoring, economic empowerment, leadership development, health and developing the professional/ community networks of its members.

In recognition of their mentees at Sterling High School, the organization has curated a scholarship event to raise donations and awareness for their diligent involvement within minority communities in Houston before the students return home for the holidays.

This emerging organization of African American millennial men exudes the saying, “What they see, is what they will be.”

Their founding organization, 100 Black Men of Houston, molded their outreach to impact the lives of black boys in Houston schools and communities throughout. Emerging 100 Houston’s impact ranges beyond their key programs, like Emerge Academy, #ProjectTux, Trailblazer and more. See website for more details (

Emerging 100 Houston created the Royale Gala to recognize philanthropic young professionals who have imposed positive impacts in our underserved communities. Royalé is a vital fundraising component so that that may continue to provide programming in minority communities that are aligned with their five pillars: Mentorship, Education, Economic Empowerment, Health & Wellness, and Leadership Development.

“To our five proteges, as you take the next steps beyond high school, we empower you to recognize the influence of a strong mindset. The perspective you hold of this world, and more importantly yourself, is a fundamental cornerstone to the growth and motivation to succeed against all odds. Remember to always show respect for yourself and others. Furthermore, learning is the key to a successful future and to welcome new experiences with confidence. Continue to aspire to greatness and there are no limits to what you can become,” Kris Mixon, the President of Emerging 100 Houston, said.

Dress code is enforced. All guests are expected to wear black tie/formal attire in promotion of the “Royale” theme. The VIP red carpet experience will be from 7 p.m. – 9 p.m. and call time for all press is 6 p.m.

Location: HTX Event Space, 1520 Oliver Street, Houston, TX
