I Will Survive Inc Awards Ceremony

NationwideI Will Survive, Inc., a non-profit 501(c)(3) based in Atlanta, Georgia and founded by combat veteran Anisa Palmer, celebrates its 12th year in operation providing philanthropic assistance to breast cancer patients and their families. To celebrate this milestone and raise additional funds for local families in need, I Will Survive (IWS) will partner with Manifest Destiny (MD) to host a Mental Health focused Art & Jazz Gala Sunday, April 30th at The Gathering Spot, 384 Northyards Blvd NW in Atlanta. Corporate sponsorships and tickets are available.

The co-founders of MD were inspired to partner with IWS for this event in many ways, including being personally impacted by breast cancer and the mental health challenges that can go along with it.

“My godmother, who was an image of health, before being diagnosed with breast cancer, has had a tumultuous 2 years. She is on her last round of chemo, but to be honest, she is always the most positive person in the room and lights up any room with her smile. Even on the bad days, she maintains her joy and faith,” said Chanell Angeli, cofounder of Manifest Destiny.

Co-founder Mario Reyes has stated, “Once you are the change you want to see, you will see everything around you change.” Since its inception, Manifest Destiny has been able to host 20 community wellness programs, impact 10 schools and extend art programs to over 500 children.

The event will feature a Live Art Auction with six notable artists including award-winning multidisciplinary artist, Chanell Angeli. Live music with Saxophone genius Richard Shaw, Jr., known for playing more than one saxophone at a time, is the featured entertainment along with other artists.
