Dear Friends & Colleagues,

For 35 years, the Urban Enrichment Institute (UEl-formerly Fifth Ward Enrichment Program, Inc.), a community-based youth development and empowerment program, has continuously demonstrated its ability to impart transformational impact on thousands of Houston's most under-served young men. UEl's mission is to empower boys to become responsible men and productive members of their families and community. UEl's holistic approach to youth development and mentorship has removed barriers and inspired the lives of more than 3,000 inner-city young men.

This year we are hosting our 18th Annual Luncheon on Thursday, October 31, 2019 from 11 :30 am to 1 :00 pm at the Junior League of Houston. As we celebrate 35 years of existence and excellence, we embody the theme: REACH: Raising Exemplars and Celebrating History. Through this theme, we desire to take you on a journey through time as the young men of the program present pivotal moments in UEl's history from 1984 to present. In paying homage to the past, we plan to reach back to those who have paved the way for the Urban Enrichment Institute. UEI alumni will join in this event to assist in providing future projections based on past knowledge and experience within the program. Thousands of youth have benefited from UEI and we hope that you will join us in recognizing the organization's accomplishments over the years and helping propel the organization forward into another 35 years of positive growth and impact! In addition to celebrating the organization's history, we will also honor Texas State Representative, Harold Dutton, Jr. as the recipient of this year's Ernest McMillan Lifetime Achievement Award. Representative Dutton is a native to Houston's Fifth Ward and one of the longest-serving members of the Texas House of Representatives. We present this award to him for his dedication to the Houston area and his continued efforts to provide resources and assistance that support the development of strong communities.

We hope you will consider a leadership investment as a table sponsor to help us celebrate the exemplars this organization has built up over the past 35 years. Attached you will find an overview of the agency, a commitment form and detailed information about the various sponsorship levels for your review.

Can we count on you? Cheers to the young men of our future!
