“The Klassic” – An Example of a “New Way Forward”


Brothers:

“Building the Dream Klassic or "The Klassic " is the first major national public fundraiser being sponsored by the Kappa Alpha Psi Foundation. The Klassic is an open event and has exciting activities for everyone. The proceeds from the Klassic will be used to help further advance our great philanthropic work across a number of initiatives including community service, disaster relief and most importantly, young development and advancement programs such as Guide Right and Undergraduate Leadership Institute (ULI).  We are very excited about this unique opportunity for you to connect with celebrities, globally branded corporations, business owners, philanthropists, thought leaders and many professionals from throughout the country.

The Klassic will be held at the PGA National Resort & Spa in Palm Beach Gardens, FL. It will start on Thursday evening, March 2, 2017, and will conclude with an optional Sunday brunch on March 5, 2017. It will include high impact educational and professional development sessions, extensive networking opportunities, golf, tennis and spa activities, clinics with golf and tennis professionals, contests for prizes, morning exercise with Zumba, shopping, entertainment and much more.

National Basketball Association Hall of Famer, Brother Oscar Robertson, will serve as the Honorary Chairperson and Brother John W. Thompson, Chairman of Microsoft, highlights an impressive list of featured guest speakers. This includes Lonnie Bunch, Founding Director of the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture, and other influential leaders like Harold Ford, Jr., Mandell Crawley and Carla Harris, all from Morgan Stanley, who will lead the educational sessions. Brother Eric Pryor will kick off the entertainment for the weekend, featuring talent from the Harlem School of the Arts (HSA) on Friday evening. On Saturday, Mo' Sol Band from Atlanta, GA will provide the entertainment for the evening. Each night will wrap up with NightKap at Bar91 and the Honda Pavilion.
