Together We Lift Each Other

For more than three decades, the Alliance has hosted one of Salt Lake City’s premiere fundraising events to support our sister community of Ouelessebougou in Mali, West Africa.  Please join us for the 33rd Annual Gala Auction on Saturday, May 4, 2019 at Little America Hotel. This amazing evening is a night to celebrate our mission and support the families in our 25 partner villages.

This family-friendly event, which hosts over 400 guests, will feature a delicious dinner buffet, an exciting silent and live auction and more. Our silent auction is one of the best in town. It includes a dessert auction with local sweets from over 40 Utah businesses. Guests can bid on over 150 handcrafted items from Africa which not only supports the Alliance’s programs, but also the local merchants in Mali and surrounding countries. Smaller items can be purchased at our African Market. Our balloon fundraiser is a guest favorite where you can donate and automatically win a prize — then get the chance at one of the grand prizes which includes Disneyland tickets.

Come join the fun, experience African culture with live entertainment and learn more about how Ouelessebougou Alliance is transforming thousands of village families.
