About UNIMAGINABLE: The HeART of Community

The annual virtual community gala UNIMAGINABLE: The HeART of Community returns on Saturday, October 22, 2022, at 6:30pm EST. Drew Olivia Tillman, a 16-year-old DC-native who has found success in Hollywood with her powerful presence and voice, has agreed again to host our event. Tune in early to catch award-winning jazz artist and producer Marcus Johnson open the evening with an intimate and live performance at 6:30 pm.

Key elements of the evening include exceptional performances from diverse young artists, musicians, and dancers, attending storied DC-area institutions. There will also be the opportunity to bid on the deeply personal artistic expressions of young people in NCCF’s programs in the Youth Art Auction.

Throughout the evening, we will recognize the unimaginable achievements and contributions of members of NCCF’s diverse extended network of customers, advocates, and benefactors who inspire the community each and every day with the good that they contribute.
