Please join us for the First Home Alliance 2022 Annual Symposium and Awards Gala as we celebrate, honor, and come together to raise awareness and funds to increase housing opportunities for low-to-moderate income and military veteran families.
Our Financial Wellness Symposium is a community benefit which consists of a full day of collaboration, education and empowerment designed to raise awareness, improve your financial wealth, and physical and mental well-being. Participants will be empowered by motivational speakers and industry experts.
Registration to the Symposium is open to the public and FREE, but a $10 donation is recommended. Your donation helps defer cost and provides you with a continental breakfast and lunch with an inspirational keynote speaker. You will also be eligible for a variety of household giveaways at the end of the Symposium!
The workshop sessions will cover a variety of topics to include money management, credit and credit reporting, home inspections, the role of a real estate agent, and dispelling VA loan myths. Attendees can even start their day off with some movement and stretching during a session titled Enjoying Yoga While You Work.
As the day continues, a VIP Networking Reception and Silent Auction will be followed by a Christmas-themed Awards Gala. During the evening, we will present local community members with numerous awards and highlight some of this year’s success stories with live in-person testimonials. Separate tickets from the Symposium registration are required to attend the Reception and Awards Gala.
The evening’s festivities will also include a plated dinner and live music entertainment by X-Factor, the Band. More than 100 business leaders, philanthropists, and community organizers have attended our annual awards dinner and fundraising events. The Awards Gala is our annual fundraiser and directly increases the level of critical assets available to support our community outreach efforts.
Tickets to the event can be purchased by visiting our Ticketing page here, and clicking the TICKETS button found there.
