The VIPP Report: The Acts of Kindness Gala will honor community leaders and area youth

AOKGala

(Louisville, KY) It’s the 2nd Annual Acts of Kindness (AOK) Gala.  It will be held on Saturday, July 15th at the Kentucky Fair & Expo Center at 8:00 pm.

The gala is a part of the Stamina Foundation, founded by NBA and NCAA champion Derek Anderson.  The foundation was created to empower youth and young adults with the resources and the life skills they need to follow their dreams.  Our first major project is to open the Stamina Academy.  The purpose of the academy is to teach skills to youth both in and out of the school system with the goal of bringing this generation back to life’s basic skills; manners, being respectful to others, self-confidence, self-motivation, and self-education.  The Stamina Foundation is excited to announce that their foundation that demonstrates doing the right thing and volunteerism will honor community leaders and area students for a second year.

The purpose of the AOK Gala is to introduce guest to the academy and how to get those doors open. Also, during the evening you will get to enjoy inspirational stories of this year’s honorees.  Those names will be released the week of the gala.

Derek Anderson says “I want to help the next generation develop mental training which is a vital life skill component.  My goal is to create more leaders and less followers.  I want them to be able to have the will power to standup for what’s right.  In turn, it becomes infectious and others will follow suit. Let’s SHOW them how GREAT they can become and to let them know that “Everything will be AOK”.

The black tie optional event will be July 15th with a “Meet & Greet” at 7:00 pm and Dinner at 8:00 pm.  Single tickets are $150 and couple tickets are $250. To purchase tickets and/or donate go to www.staminafd.com.

If you would like to setup an interview (in-studio/by phone) with Derek Anderson Sr. please contact Sherlene Shanklin, VIPP Communications at 502-295-0435 or by email at sshanklin@vippcommunications.com.
