2023 Horace Ruben Scholarship Gala

Greetings! On behalf of the Brothers of W.C. Thomas Lodge #112, thank you for attending our 2023 Horace Ruben Scholarship Gala. The Brothers are thankful to each you that have taken to the time to support and invest in our efforts to engage with and uplift youth and families in our community. For 131 years, W.C. Thomas Lodge #112 has continued to raise the level through our committed and active engagement in the Atlanta community.


As part of our Lodge’s school engagement efforts, we have focused our energy and resources on creating a “Cradle to College/Career Pipeline” for our youth. The scholarships provided at this year’s gala are part of those efforts to provide additional financial support for students as they prepare for higher education and for those that still have needs during their first year. Our young adults need us now more than ever, and with your generous donations and gifts we can continue to invest in these future leaders as they put in the work to achieve their goals.

Thank you for your continued generosity and support for W.C. Thomas Lodge #112. Your commitment to this Lodge aids us in our ability to be transformative in the lives of young people, families, schools, and our communities.
