Sunbeam Award Gala
The Sunbeam Award Gala recognizes those who embody the ideals of community. Started in 2004, the Sunbeam Award Gala is the Mission’s premiere fundraising event. The Sunbeam Award is given to recipients who have made a positive impact on Mission communities, either through philanthropy or community-building. Invitations to purchase a ticket, table, or sponsorship are available in late spring.
President’s Scholarship Celebration
The President’s Scholarship Celebration is a moving event that honors new Mission scholarship recipients. The program includes a chance to get to know these inspiring students, along with awards presented to community mentors and education leaders. The ceremony ends with honorees receiving a teal cord and being welcomed as new Mission Scholars.
