African American Club of Pasco to hold scholarship gala


The African American Club of Pasco will end its Black History Month events with a gala scholarship dinner dance Feb. 22 at the Seven Springs Resort and Golf Club.

The event enables the club to provide scholarships to students based on their achievements in school as well as their need for assistance in getting a higher education or seeking to become a law enforcement officer in Pasco County.

The African American Club has a long history of helping Pasco's children, providing free test preparation for the FCAT and SAT with a certified teacher at three different grade levels as well as golf lessons and, soon, chess lessons. The club also sponsors bus tours to historical sites including Rosewood and the Harry and Harriet Moore Memorial park in Mims, and puts on annual celebrations of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday and Juneteenth.

With the assistance of the New Port Richey Library and the West Pasco Historical Society, the club is co-sponsoring a film festival of Nigerian films, a presentation on Florida's Black Seminoles and soon a presentation on the civil rights movement.

Tickets to the gala are $60 each. Sponsorship opportunities are availabe. For more information contact Trish Stevenson at (727) 495-3207, or President Darryll Stevenson Sr. at (727) 495-3206.
